As you know, I've been spending more time in clinics and hospitals than I like to lately. LOL!!! In one treatment room the other day, I came across a couple of posters, one written in English and the other in Spanish, of course. URGGHH... I found their message to be quite important and so I want to pass this information on to you. I was so thrilled to be able to nurse Leighlyn for her first year but was unable to breast-feed Abigayle because of my heart surgery that was done 5 weeks after she was born and the medications that I would be on for the rest of my life.
"Breastmilk--a babies first protection against disease."
Protects TODAY against
1. Flu viruses
3. RSV--a serious disease that can result in death
4. Ear infections
Protects TOMORROW against
3. Heart diseases
So, if you or someone you know is considering having a baby, remember this information.
