August is Breastfeeding Awareness Month

Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles is celebrating three observances this month dedicated to supporting and promoting breastfeeding: National Breastfeeding Month, World Breastfeeding Week (Aug. 1 to 7), and Black Breastfeeding Week (Aug. 25 to 31).

Welcoming a new baby into the world is one of the most exciting events new and expecting parents can experience. At Kaiser Permanente, we are committed to supporting healthy moms and babies. We recommend that babies get nothing but breast milk for the first 6 months of life and continue to breastfeed for at least a year. Breast milk provides all the nourishment babies need in their first 6 months, is easiest for babies to digest, and provides antibodies that can strengthen their immune systems. Breastfeeding is good for moms too. It speeds their recovery after childbirth, helps them lose weight gained during pregnancy, and reduces the risk of diabetes, heart disease and some cancers.

You may have many questions and concerns about pregnancy, breastfeeding, and your postpartum experience, especially during the pandemic. In response, we created a COVID-19 and pregnancy page to answer common questions specific to perinatal needs. Be sure to speak to your healthcare provider with any concerns or questions you may have.
