Beginning this blissful journey of writing for the first time has made me excited and scared all at once. My goal is to explore the world of parenting and education through social media.
As a mother, wife, teacher, and writer, I am constantly bombarded by the demands of my different facets of life. Each facet comes together to create what you read about and see on this site! Raising two young children and teaching Psychology and World Cultures to high school students has shaped who I am and the topics I find important. My interests tend to focus on parenting and education, but in the end are infinite in scope!
Breastfeeding is such a wonderful way to prepare your child for the world by fortifying them with nutrients and immunities that formula cannot provide. It is also an amazing bonding experience between mother and infant. I am so delighted that I had the opportunity to breastfeed both of my children. Not only did this experience help cement my relationship with them, but it gave them the best possible start to life.
The gift of breast milk should be available for all infants, but unfortunately it is not. Regardless of the reason why some infants are unable to receive breast milk, donation banks around the United States are helping make this more of a reality.
The following article describes Milkin’ Mamas, the breast milk donation center that I donated my extra supply to while breastfeeding my daughter. It is an amazing cause and worthy of your attention and promotion. Spread the word about breast milk donation.
This specific donation center caters to premature infants. In this case the breast milk is not just a great start to life, but it can improve recovery and shorten their initial hospital stay. What a remarkable gift for a lactating mother to give!
