Anew month is soon upon us, and with it comes a cause that is very close to many new moms' hearts—literally!
August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month, (and the first week of the month is also celebrated as World Breastfeeding Week) and for a nursing mama, that means a spotlight on the ways in which you are working hard to feed your babe and an promotion of resources and support to help you continue your breastfeeding relationship successfully.
One such place that's a great resource for all the gear recommendations and advice you might need is Yummy Mummy. The purpose of this site started by Amanda Cole, lactation expert and owner of the specialty store with the same name, is “to facilitate and enrich the breastfeeding experience by providing the information, personal attention, and products and services that mothers need to make breastfeeding enjoyable, rewarding and stress free. Yummy Mummy will serve as a gathering place for soon-to-be and new moms who are seeking support, guidance and sisterhood.” Sounds good to us.
You can find everything from breast pump rentals to nursing apparel to links to lactation consultants and breastfeeding information to books and DVDs and more. Emporium is the right word to describe this online haven for nursing moms—it's a one-stop spot for gear you can buy and ears you can bend for helpful tips. (If you live in the Manhattan area, check out their selection of classes.)
Peruse Yummy Mummy today—maybe you'll find just the boost you need to keep your breastfeeding success going strong.
