"It's Only Natural" campaign offers knowledge, support, and advice to breastfeeding mothers and has a particular interest in the African American community.



It's Only Natural helps African-American women and their families understand the health benefits of breastfeeding—not just for babies, but for moms too. Here, you’ll find facts about breastfeeding and get practical tips on how to make breastfeeding work for you while getting the support you need.


The website is well-organized and is sure to be a big help to a lot of moms.  I especially love this video that tackles a lot of breastfeeding misconceptions.


How do you like the new government endorsed campaign?

Work-at-home mama of one tot with another on the way!

Yes, any support for breastfeeding is awesome! I hope they expand it, rather than limiting the focus to one group. Breastfeeding information is lacking in a lot of arenas, and I think there needs to be a stronger focus by the medical community on the benefits of breastfeeding and stressing that formula is a poor substitute to be used only when absolutely necessary.
