breast_feedingAugust kicks off all things #breastfeeding, which means that we have been center stage for some of the wonderful local events to support and normalize breastfeeding.

It goes without saying that breast milk is the perfect nutrition for the baby! Breast milk provides the ideal natural nutrition with significant immunologic, psychological, social, economic, and environmental benefits.

We kicked off World Breastfeeding Week on Saturday, August 2nd with The Big Latch On – Marietta, a local event organized by C.O.B.B. Moms that supports breastfeeding. We had over 50 moms that participated with their babes in the official count of latched moms, plus an additional 100 participants and vendors! Dr. Tijana shared some nutritional tips for healthy breastfeeding to benefit both mom & baby. We had a great showing of community support in the Greater Atlanta area! We’re deeply appreciative of everyone who came out and supported breastfeeding moms & their families! There were other locations taking place all around Atlanta! We’re certainly very excited about helping to organize next year’s #BLOmarietta event!

IMG_4478.JPGIn continued support, we will be a part of this Saturday’s event, A Day In The Park, with the mission of “Breastfeeding: A Winning Goal For Life” to protect, promote, and support breastfeeding. The event is organized by the Cobb & Douglas Public Health WIC Breastfeeding Program with the West Georgia Breastfeeding Coalition. Come out and show your support by participating with many local and national vendors! Stop by our table for some FREE giveaways!

We are very passionate about helping breastfeeding moms and babies through chiropractic, nutritional, and emotional support. But not all breastfeeding is as easily achieved as it is often assumed for many different reasons. Our goals is to provide you with educational and practical applications in order for you to make the best choice for you, your baby, and family. We are here to help and offer support in whatever capacity we can and without judgement, so feel free to ask questions and ask for help. If we can’t help you, we have a great number of resources that we can share with you and direct you to other breastfeeding support specialists!
