"Making the decision to have a child is momentous. 

It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body."

~ Elizabeth Stone

Exclusive Breastfeeding Recommendations (Health Canada)

Breastfeeding Support Clinic and Information (Dr. Jack Newman)

Infant Formula

Safe preparation of infant formula (World Health Organization)

Note: Dr. Bailetti strongly encourages women to breastfeed their children exclusively for a minimum of 6 months and ideally for an additional 1 1/2 years while introducing solid food. This is because of the long lasting health benefits for children and breastfeeding mothers. Most difficulties with breastfeeding and milk production can be resolved by visiting a knowledgeable practitioner (see Dr. Jack Newman's Clinic). If you must use infant formula, please follow the above recommendations regarding safe preparation and select an organic formula.

The risks of not breastfeeding your child include: higher rates of infections (in the ear, respiratory tract, digestive system and urinary tract), allergies, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, diabetes (type 1 and type 2), lymphoma and hospitalization in the first year of life due to serious bacterial illness. They also develop fewer protective antibodies in response to vaccination. Studies of intelligence and development have also shown lower IQ and lower developmental scores among children who were not breastfed.

If I Had my Child To Raise Over Again

If I had my child to raise all over again,
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I'd finger paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I would care to know less and know to care more.
I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.
I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars,
I'd do more hugging and less tugging.
I'd see the oak tree in the acorn more often,
I would be firm less often, and affirm much more.
I'd model less about the love of power,
And more about the power of love

~ Poem by Diane Loomans
