God has blessed new mothers with a beautiful gift - the ability to nourish and nurture their babies with breast milk. Breastfeeding is a simple way to ensure your baby's good health and proper psychological development, and also an integral part of being a Catholic mother. In Breastfeeding and Catholic Motherhood, author Sheila Kippley brings together countless pieces of research, advice from priests and popes, and practical tips that will help you become the loving Catholic mother your baby needs.
This book shares what mothers need to know about the power of breastfeeding from a spiritual perspective. Discover the physical benefits for both baby and mom, such as improved immunity, better digestive health, and more restful sleep for mom. Learn how contemporary doctors like Dr. Vreeland offer clarity on how breastfeeding is uniquely essential for Catholic families. Take away ancient wisdom from Pastor Johannes Reuchlin’s tract on maladies in newborns as well as other helpful insights towards raising children in faith.
It’s no secret that breastfeeding offers enormous benefits for babies; through Breastfeeding and Catholic Motherhood, you can learn some amazing ways to use this blessing to enrich your journey through motherhood with love, devotion, health and balance!
