Celebrating World Breastfeeding Week

Posted on: August 1st, 2012 by Knueppel HealthCare Services No Comments
Having a child can be a life-changing event and at KHS we want you to know that we are dedicated to supporting you through your journey. KHS celebrates World Breastfeeding Week August 1-7, 2012 to protect, support and promote breastfeeding.

 

Twenty years ago, the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action started the World Breastfeeding Week campaign to support all women in breastfeeding and caring for their infants and young children.

 

Our team of professional, certified fitters is here to assist women in selecting merchandise related to breastfeeding and breast care. We are committed to combining caring and compassionate service with the most recent advances in product technology.

 

Breastfeeding Contributes to a Healthy Child

Breastfeeding your baby is one of the most important decisions you can make. Not only is breastfeeding best for your baby’s health, it can also benefit you in many ways.

Breastfeeding is the most natural and nutritious way to encourage your baby’s development. Mothers’ milk is a unique combination of fats, sugars, minerals, proteins, vitamins and enzymes custom-made to promote brain and body growth.

However, there may be times when breastfeeding, even under the best of circumstances, can present challenges, as both mother and baby are learning what to do. It’s worth the effort because your baby receives important nutritional, immunological, and developmental benefits and both of you get to enjoy a special closeness.
