Go Plant-Strong!
The Daily Beet: Tips, Advice and Stories

Breast feed that baby!

Before babies are able to eat solid food and receive all the Plant Strong goodness that you give them, breast milk is the ultimate nutrition — providing immunologic, developmental, psychological, social, economic, and environmental benefits. I encourage all mothers who are able to breastfeed to do so for at least a year and longer if possible!

Please help me in supporting our friend and E2 advocate Monica Cravotta, who is working to complete an album of children’s music with eight other women singers in Austin to raise awareness about the benefits of breastfeeding and the need for donated breast milk. All profits from the album will go to The Mother’s Milk Bank. A $25 donation toward the production costs buys you a mailed copy of the completed CD. Higher donations receive advertising perks and more.
