National Breastfeeding Month

August is National Breastfeeding Month. Breastfeeding contributes to children’s healthy brain development through its role in the formation of nurturing relationships between a mother and infant. The establishment of a nurturing relationship helps infants attach to their mothers. An infant’s secure attachment is the main source of a child’s security, self-esteem, self-control and development of healthy social-emotional skills. To learn more about the importance of social-emotional development, please visit the Infant Mental Health section of www.kidsmentalhealthinfo.com
