Drinking while pregnant is never okay. Alcohol causes lifelong damage to a baby’s developing brain and other organs. There is no safe amount, no safe kind, and no safe time that you can drink while pregnant.
Did you know that Breast Milk has all the nutrition your baby needs?
Not only is breastfeeding natural and inexpensive... but breast milk boosts baby’s immune system and helps prevent infections, disease, and even certain cancers. Finding support makes all the difference. You can do it!
Bonding with your baby is not only important for growth and development but also helps provide a sense of security and positive self-esteem. Talk, sing, and read to your baby, and respond to their cries. Remember: it’s impossible to spoil an infant!
