National Breastfeeding Month: Breastfeeding Resources from Lamaze

Last week was World Breastfeeding Week, and the entire month of August is National Breastfeeding Month, as declared in 2011 by the United States Breastfeeding Committee. As an expectant or new parent, you will find that the web is chock full of several, awesome breastfeeding resources. We'll share some of our favorite breastfeeding resources from around the net later this week. Today, we would like to share with you the many (and mostly free) resources Lamaze has created just for breastfeeding families.
