Why is Breastfeeding So Important?
Breastfeeding is important for your baby’s health and the evidence is clear. The World Health Organization, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Canadian Pediatric Society recommend exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months of your baby’s life.
Here are some of the reasons breastfeeding is the right choice for your baby’s health:
- When babies receive breast milk, the chance of having asthma, allergies, ear, chest and stomach infections decreases.
- When a breastfeeding mom is exposed to a germ, her body makes antibodies to that germ. These antibodies appear in the breast milk, passing the protection on to baby.
Breastfeeding is also important for mothers:
- Breastfeeding right after the birth of your baby helps to decrease the chance of heavy bleeding.
- Breastfeeding helps you return to your pre-pregnant weight, burning about 500 calories a day.
- Exclusive breastfeeding delays the return of your menstrual period.
- Women who breastfeed also have a decreased risk of breast and ovarian cancer and a decreased chance of developing osteoporosis.

Frequently Asked Questions
If breastfeeding is natural, why do I need to take a course?
The first few weeks of breastfeeding can be challenging. It will be new for both you and your baby. Breastfeeding is natural but it takes some time to learn. Studies show that 92% of mothers with 3-day-old babies report having at least one breastfeeding problem. Many of these problems could have been prevented if mothers were armed with knowledge about the basics of breastfeeding and normal newborn feeding . This course will teach you the 5 basics of breastfeeding and equip you to interpret your baby's feeding cues. This knowledge will help you to get off to the best possible start with breastfeeding. You will have the basic skills required to work through some of the initial breastfeeding challenges.
Why should I choose THIS breastfeeding course?
In this course you will be learning from Registered Nurses and International Board Certified Lactation Consultants who have spent over 20 years helping families get started with breastfeeding. Cindy and Jana have the knowledge and the practical experience to help you feel confident and answer your questions before you’ve even thought of them.

I plan to return to work shortly after my baby’s birth. Wouldn’t it be easier on both me and my baby to simply formula feed?
Studies show that even a short time of breastfeeding has health benefits for your baby. Colostrum, the first milk a mother produces, ‘paints’ your baby’s intestines, creating a barrier against germs and foreign substances. Breast milk given to your baby at any age is rich in antibodies and helps to protect your baby against disease. Many women choose to continue breastfeeding their baby when they return to work. Pumping while away from baby maintains milk supply and provides a great source of nutrition for baby. Breastfeeding from birth will help you to develop an abundant supply of milk. You will save lots of money from not having to buy formula!
