World Breastfeeding Week

It's World Breastfeeding Week and while I'm not out there celebrating it with the rest for the hordes, I'm practicing it myself. I encourage all moms to seriously consider breastfeeding their babies!

I'm currently 7 weeks post-Cesarean section. For the past 2 days, I noted a loss of 2 pounds. No diet, no exercise, none of any of those top rated diet pills. I'm attributing this to breastfeeding. I've been purely breastfeeding my almost-seven-week-old daughter and I want to continue to do for at least a year. I breastfed my firstborn for 1 year and 10 and a half months and I know I could do the same for my daughter.

The benefits of breastfeeding are outlined here:
