A few weeks ago, we commemorated World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) 2014. Sadly, I wasn’t able to attend Hakab Na again this year because of a family thing, but I’m glad I was able to promote it somehow last week in my Philstar.com post about Awesome August Activities for Moms.
Although WBW 2014 has come to an end, it’s still Breastfeeding Month, so, to “celebrate,” here’s a round-up of my favorite breastfeeding posts (Please don’t mind the formatting and any broken images/links though, since I still haven’t had the time to fix my pre-Wordpress.org posts! Huhuhu!):
My Thoughts on Extended Breastfeeding
Also, if you want to take part in activities to celebrate National Breastfeeding Awareness Month, please feel free to check out my article on Smart Parenting’s website here.
Cheers to us breastfeeding mommas! (And if you’re not a breastfeeding mom, cheers to you, too! I know you have your own reasons for not breastfeeding but hopefully, you’d still share the oh-so-many benefits of breastfeeding with others!)
Happy Breastfeeding Month!
Our Lady of La Leche, pray for us!
Prayer of a Mother to Our Lady of La Leche
To You, lovely Lady of La Leche, and to your Divine Son, do I now dedicate this little baby whom our Father in heaven has given me.
Grateful for the trust He has placed in me, I beg you to obtain for me the physical and spiritual graces I need to fulfill my duties at every moment.
Inspire me with the motherly sentiments you felt during your days with the Child Jesus.
Make it possible for me, in imitation of you, O Lady of La Leche, to nurse my child to perfect health.
In all things help me to follow the example which you, as the perfect model of all mothers, have given to me.
Let my family mirror the virtues of your Holy Family of Nazareth.
Finally, I commend to your loving care all the mothers of earth, in whose hands He has entrusted the souls of His little children. Amen.
