When it comes to feeding your baby, breastfeeding is quite obviously the most eco-friendly choice. It is free, generates no waste, is a renewable resource, and requires no energy to produce (except of course for those calories your body is burning). It is also the most healthy food for babies to be consuming, as it is loaded with nutrients, immunities, and antibodies that can’t be replicated by formula or solid food. What you may not know, however, is that breastfeeding is also healthy for moms. Breastfeeding protects against breast cancer, uterine and ovarian cancer, as well as osteoporosis. Since October is Breast Cancer awareness month, we thought it an appropriate time to highlight the health benefits of breastfeeding for mother and child.
Bamboo is a great fabric for nursing wear, as it is breathable, dries quickly, is naturally anti-bacterial, and extremely soft and comfortable. Did we mention its also super eco-friendly?
