August is National Breastfeeding Awareness month. I love that such a great loving act is given an entire month for people to focus on and to celebrate. For those without child, it may seem to be such a petty thing to celebrate but believe me, it is worth celebrating every single day of this month. When I was single, I used to think that I would just give my baby formula to save me the hassle and the time. I used to think that it was all about the type of woman you are. I always thought that breastfeeding was only for the domesticated moms. But when I attended classes before, I truly saw its value and benefits. I think every mom should try to understand how breastfeeding works and why it is important.
