Although World Breastfeeding Week is typically celebrated in August, at MilkWorks EVERY day is world breastfeeding week. Since we opened our doors over 16 years ago, exclusive breastfeeding rates in our country have slowly climbed. Many mothers WANT to breastfeed. They START breastfeeding, but many stop far sooner than they want to. Our mission is to help mothers meet THEIR breastfeeding goals.
We often forget that we really do not know much about breastfeeding. Mothers and babies relied upon breastfeeding for centuries, since the beginning of mankind. We disrupted breastfeeding ~sixty years ago. As we try and restore breastfeeding, our values have shifted, our daily life looks different, and there is a huge gap in what we do and don’t know.
