Hi!

I have a few pdf files about breastfeeding that I can email you if you pm me your email address. I think kellymom has tons of pdf handouts you can download too. Good luck!

Here is a good link for some other handouts. I haven't really looked through it so I'm not sure of the content but it should help.

Here's a link to that really great article "Watch Your Language." You might want to incorporate some of her points or copy and hand it out.

I agree that this is an awesome article. Even if you don't hand it out, speaking of breastfeeding as the norm, and of the risks of not breastfeeding, rather than the benefits of breastfeeding, is an eye-opener!
Good luck!
