It is easier to breastfeed while babywearing because the baby has direct and constant access to the breast for frequent small feedings as needed. If you decide to breastfeed and need support you may contact a La Leche League group in your area at www.llli,org. They help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education.

Nothing compares to the intimate moments between a mother and her nursing child and nothing helps get a baby off to a healthier start in life.

Rita Brhel, executive editor of The Attached Family writes,

“I can say with confidence that there is something truly magical about the breastfeeding relationship. So much more than a transfer of nutrients from mother to baby, the act of breastfeeding touches on each of the Eight Principles of Parenting from nurturing touch and safe sleep to consistent care and personal balance. Breastfeeding is, as Attachment Parenting International co-founders Barbara Nicholson and Lysa Parker write in their book, Attached at the Heart, the very model of an attachment bond.
