The mission of this #normalizebfing photo project is to document diverse variations of normal breastfeeding across cultures and delivery methods of breast milk. Nursing, pumping, and donated breast milk are the simple ways we can all give our babies a great start in life.

Having a closet full of baby clothes and plastic toys won’t help
You have your baby !
Protein , whole grains , leafy greens and water! 3 meals a day – no skipped meals !
Exercise – even a brisk daily walk does wonders!
Honestly the baby will be fine with a couple of onesies , a receiving blanket and a warm blanket and some diapers to get started!
But baby won’t do well without its mother !
Spend the money on nurturing yourself… as best as you can..,
If you need help check out the food bank – let friends know that you’d appreciate food donations or food cooked for you !
Your baby needs you!
I love this little graphic and decided to share it with you.
Bottom line – human babies need human milk to flourish and to achieve optimum development and ability to learn and live well with others .
We at Oakland Better Birth Foundation support all the paths that bring human milk and bonding to human babies !
