“I am still breastfeeding Benjamin and it has been incredibly rewarding and healing. It gives me so much joy to breastfeed him and I am so grateful that I am able to do it. He loves it too! Mother’s milk is loaded with so much vital protection that your child will never get anywhere else. I know that not all moms can breastfeed but anyone who wants to do it should get educated, be able to make an informed decision about what is best for themselves and their babies, and get all the support they need. I’ve been learning from Best for Babes that too many moms are not getting the right help from their hospitals and doctors, and are having to fight for their right to pump at work or be able to nurse on the go. I’m also sad to hear that so many moms are being discouraged from breastfeeding past a few months when there are clear benefits to nursing much longer.
“I am so glad Jenna, Laila and I are hosting this event to raise awareness of giving the next generation the healthiest start. I’m proud to stand up for the rights of moms and babies to have the best start in life, through breastfeeding and toxin-free living!” –Kelly Preston
