Breastfeeding is one of the most natural and beautiful parts about being a mother. No matter where you are from around the world, we all breastfeed our babies the same way. Besides the emotional benefits, breastfeeding also offers a host of health benefits for baby, including boosting his immune system, preventing food allergies, and warding off acute illnesses down the road.
A month-long celebration for National Breastfeeding Awareness Month isn’t nearly enough. From T-shirts, to water bottles, and even proud pins, show how pumped you are to nurse year-round with a few of our favorite picks.
Don’t wear your heart on your sleeve; wear it on your T-shirt. These tees are punny, chic, and, most importantly, they speak the truth. The next time you need to defend your choice to breastfeed, throw on one of these and let it do the talking.
