The Daily Crunch: Celebrating Breastfeeding

This morning my daughters and I are planning to attend an annual breastfeeding celebration put on by the lactation nurses and consultants at our local hospital. The girls and I have gone every year for the last three years, and it's always a fun time. Lots of Crunchy Mamas and their adorable breastfed babies and toddlers! 

In celebration of breastfeeding and all of it's amazing benefits for mothers, babies and our planet, here are some cool breastfeeding-related images found around the web:

"Oh that's okay, I have received too much breastfeeding support already," said no mother ever.

$13,000,000,000: What the United States would save annually if mothers would exclusively breastfeed for the first six months of their baby's life.  I wonder what the long-term healthcare savings would be with all those babies getting the healthiest nutritional start possible.
