Moms Learn Benefits of Breastfeeding

Physicians say babies who are breast fed have a better chance of warding off ailments later in life. And what better time to teach mothers that lesson than during world breast feeding week.

The lactation center at Trinity Mother Frances Health System set up an information booth to educate soon-to-be moms on the benefits of breast feeding. The FDA says breast fed babies are less susceptible to ear infections, rashes and allergies.
