Happy World Breastfeeding Awareness Week ladies!
And we cannot think of a better friend to recognize through this week and this journey than Y-O-U.
Yes, the Milkful team wholeheartedly supports breastfeeding, but, even more so, we recognize that the journey can be hard, and it is my hope that you show yourself some grace and love this week, and recognize all that you've accomplished already in bringing that sweet, little one to life!
This week, we encourage you to reach out to a friend who might be struggling along this nursing journey - share some words of praise and encouragement with her today.
Also, be sure to check out info on the Global Big Latch-On! Events will be taking place at registered locations around the world, where women gather together to breastfeed and offer peer support to each other. Find more info here
