Happy Earth Day

Happy Earth Day!

Did you know that breastfeeding is not only beneficial to you and your baby but also to the planet!
We can’t think of a more ecological and naturally healthy way to celebrate than breastfeeding.
In honor of Earth Day we’re sharing our top 5 ways breastfeeding is good for the planet:
 

1.) No water needed
Breastfeeding is a wonderful way to protect our most precious natural resource: water. Indeed, all a baby needs for the first 6 months of its life is breast milk. A woman's body produces just the right amount her infant requires to grow healthy, and no extra ingredient is needed!

2.) Saves energy
B
reast milk doesn’t have to be heated artificially. It is always ready to be served at the right temperature. Breastfeeding also saves time and energy by allowing you to skip having to prepare bottles in the middle of the night.

3.) No manufacturing required
Breastfeeding is a manufacturing-free experience. Well, unless you count the hard work it takes you to make breast milk. Manufacturing formula, bottles and other accessories all take a toll on the environment, from factory and transportation emissions, toxic waste and water pollution, to non biodegradable materials used in the manufacturing and packaging process.

4.) Less healthcare impact
Breastfeeding offers phenomenal health benefits for both babies and mothers, as both get sick less. This means they aren’t taxing the healthcare system, which requires tons of resources and money.

5.) Delayed Menstruation
Breastfeeding moms typically do not return to regular menstrual cycles for an average of 14 months. Less menstruation creates less waste on sanitary products that end up in landfills and water treatment facilities.

Join us in celebrating Earth Day by breastfeeding! Happy Earth Day!
