(PRWEB) August 30, 2013
Breastfeeding rates are rising across the county, reported CBS News (8.1.13). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's 2013 Breast Feeding Report Card found that 77 percent of new mothers are breastfeeding their babies. This is a 4 percent increase compared to ten years ago. With so many moms choosing to breastfeed, a good baby gift to consider is the mombo™ nursing pillow from Comfort & Harmony™, a Kids II® brand.
Close to half of moms breastfeed for at least the six months recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, said CBS News. The new report tracked trends in U.S. breastfeeding rates from 2000 through 2010.
The general belief is that babies who were breastfed have lower risks of certain conditions, including ear and gastrointestinal infections, asthma, childhood leukemia, and diabetes.
Mombo nursing pillows are specially designed to make breastfeeding easier for mom and baby both. The two-sided design called Firm2Soft™ gives mom and baby extra support on the firm side, so both can stay in a comfortable position while nursing. The other side of the pillow, the soft side, can be used for lounging, tummy time and as a support for baby when she or he begins to sit up. The pillow also features a removable vibration unit that soothes baby.
According to the new CDC report, in 2010, 27 percent of mothers continued breast-feeding when their child was 1-year-old. Forty-nine percent of mothers breastfed their child for close to six months.
