Celebrate Breastfeeding Awareness Month with TJK Organics
The benefits of breastfeeding are never-ending. From providing made-to-order antibodies that fight off everyday illnesses as well as more serious diseases and infections, to actually boosting baby’s brain development, not to mention being the most sustainable and environmentally friendly option too, it’s all-round pretty amazing. However, we’re well aware that breastfeeding can often come fraught with challenges for poor old mum, so it’s up to all of us to provide the support and encouragement that they need to strive on.
Everyone knows that being a new mother is undoubtedly hard work and with breastfeeding thrown in, these wonder-women are facing blistered nipples, sleepless nights and a whole new learning curve with baby that can only be learned through trial and error, on top of everything else that comes with a new arrival!
For mums, ‘me-time’ is pretty much non-existent and peace and quiet is only ever found in the sanctity of the bath or shower, where for those few moments she can just take care of herself again, washing herself anew.
Enjoy this special time for yourself, free from worry about how your little luxuries are affecting your baby. Our organic products are made with 100% natural ingredients that are safe for the whole family to use, so treat yourself this World Breastfeeding Week. You’re so worth celebrating!
5 Amazing Benefits of Breastfeeding
Bespoke for Baby
A mother’s breast milk is perfectly designed for her baby. Providing all of the essential proteins, vitamins and fats for a little one to thrive and then some!
Breast milk even produces all of the antibodies required to fight off bacteria that the bub has come into contact with. All breast milk is tailored specifically to suit each individual baby’s needs.
As well as all of the antibodies already present in breast milk and all of those produced as soon as mother or child comes into contact with an infection, it also contains impressively high levels of stem cells to heal and repair at a rapid rate and lines the intestinal tract full of probiotics, preventing illness and leaky gut syndrome.
The longer you breast feed your baby, the more benefits you and your baby will be rewarded – for life!
Breast fed babies are less likely to have allergies, less likely to develop diabetes or become obese and have a higher protection from childhood Leukaemia and Crohn’s Disease.
Great for Mum
Breastfeeding Awareness Month isn’t all about celebrating the benefits for baby – there are big bonuses for mum too! A breastfeeding mama’s risk of breast cancer and post-natal depression drops dramatically and stress levels are reduced thanks to all that lovely Oxytocin.
The first three years of life are critical for a child’s brain development so it’s great news that breastmilk contains long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are essential for helping your baby’s brain to develop.
