Breastfeeding is important for many reasons not only for the child but it benefits the mother as well. Mothers who breastfeed decrease their chance of obtaining breast and ovarian cancer while also decreasing the chance of osteoporosis.
Breastmilk supplies all the necessary nutrients while also fighting against allergies, sickness, and obesity. Babies who are breastfed can have healthier weights as they grow. It also protects against certain diseases and infections.
Breastmilk is ever changing. It changes constantly throughout a child’s breastfeeding journey. A child at one year will not have the same milk produced as a newborn would have. It also changes based on time of day. When a mother nurses at night her milk contains melatonin which helps put not only baby but mom to sleep as well.
Another benefit of breastmilk is that it is always ready when fed directly from the breast. If a mother is out and about there is no need for fuss with correct portioning. It is as simple as finding a comfortable position to nurse the baby.
We want to celebrate breastfeeding awareness month with you! Print this article out and bring it in for 15% off any breastfeeding product excluding breastpumps during the month of August.
There is still plenty of hot weather and summer left so consider getting one (or more) pairs of Spenco sandals to get you through the the rest of summer and early fall. Spenco sandals are designed based on a cushioned heel, deep heel cupping, orthotic arch support, metatarsal dome, and a cushioned forefoot. And unlike other footwear that claims orthotic benefits, Spenco® Footwear is easy to wear: The initial soft feel and incredible comfort are unmatched. It’s the combination of all these features that create “The Shape That Feels Great®” only Spenco® Footwear with TOTAL SUPPORT Technology has it, and it makes for the best footwear to ease the symptoms of the most common foot ailments.
