We usually hear that breastfeeding is good because it is good for individual mothers and babies: bonding, good nutrition, good health. But breastfeeding is good for our environment too: no packaging, no transportation, no waste. The Australian Breastfeeding Association has some great posters that celebrate the way breastfeeding protects our environment. I wish I had a place to display these (a disadvantage doing home visits instead of having an office…). My favorite is the one with the cute baby feet: “Breastfeeding leaves no footprint.” What’s your favorite?

Yes, I like the baby feet one, too! So cute!
I love them all. Especially the blond little girl. That might be because she is my daughter!!! Hope you enjoy looking at them
Thanks for your blog! I looked at the sweet breastfeeding posters on the environmental advantages of breastfeeding from the Australian Breastfeeding Association. They are great.
In fact, I posted them and their link on my blog. Please visit and see my posting on: “10 Ways Every Adult Can Support a Breastfeeding Mother.” It takes a village and those in a mother’s environment have more influence on her breastfeeding success than ever before.
