Breastfeeding benefits the whole family

Posted on August 20, 2016 at 3:05 PM
What a perfect picture for today...because on Monday, I get to share Katie's story in our next installment of "In Their Own Words".

One of the amazing benefits of breastfeeding is that the mother creates oxytocin, the hormone of social relationships. Not only does it create calm for the mother and the nursling; it actually has the potential to create calm in the entire space they occupy.

For more reading on oxytocin, click HERE for an article from Scientific American.
