Life as a mom who has her hands full

How much money you can save by Breastfeeding?

I was reading a very interesting blog which I am going to promptly add to my blogroll entitled..www.thesimpledollar.com which is a blog basically about…you guessed it…saving money.  The article I read was about how much money does the average breastfeeding mother save by breastfeeding her child. In his blog he estimated that the average baby ate about 25 ounces of milk per day and then calculated that by breastfeeding your baby until he is a year old, you would save $1733.75!!  That is a significant savings! Most mothers already know of the health benefits that breastmilk provides, but now you know how much money you really are saving by breastfeeding. Great job to the author of the simple dollar for taking the time to calculate such a wonderful number!
