August is Breastfeeding Awareness Month

August is designated as Breastfeeding Awareness Month. This year’s theme in Ohio is Breastfeeding-It’s a TEAM thing! It’s aimed to promote the support person’s role in successful breastfeeding. Research shows that the more support a mom receives, the more likely she is to give breastfeeding a try and the more likely she is to keep it going even if things get tough.   Full Press Release
