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?
