Breastfeeding Awareness


August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month. Although the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breastfeeding infants for a full year, recent statistics from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services show that while 64 percent of American women breastfeed in the early postpartum period, only 29 percent of them are still breastfeeding after six months. Avent America, a leading manufacturer of baby feeding products, is offering a FREE 24-page Breastfeeding Guide to help parents learn more about the health and nutritional benefits of breastfeeding and to answer commonly asked questions.
