** Note: *Your Region Baby supports Health Canada and the WHO which both state that breastfeeding is the best method of feeding infants as it provides optimal nutritional, immunological and emotional benefits for the growth and development of infants. Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended for the first six months of life for healthy term infants, as breast milk is the best food for optimal growth. Infants should be introduced to nutrient-rich, solid foods with particular attention to iron at six months with continued breastfeeding for up to two years and beyond.

For more information please see your doctor or visit where you can find breastfeeding support in our area.

Raising Money for the Newman Breastfeeding Clinic & Institute

For the past two years, the Celebrity Baby Blog has organized an official holiday giving project that includes their readers and our sponsors. This year's project is a unique opportunity for their readers and sponsors alike as well as the featured charity.

The Celebrity Baby Blog 2007 Holiday Project is A Month of Auctions which will benefit the Newman Breastfeeding Clinic & Institute (NBCI) at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, run by world renowned breastfeeding advocate and pediatrician Dr. Jack Newman.

The primary function of the NBCI is to assist breastfeeding mothers and their babies with breastfeeding challenges. It also provides clinical training for pediatric residents, medical students, nurses, and candidates for those who intend to become International Board Certified Lactation Consultants.

As the NBCI no longer receives funding from the Canadian government, it is in danger of closing, having already reduced its hours.

How it works....
Beginning November 1, the Celebrity Baby Blog will post about one auction prize a day for the entire month. Readers will learn about the auction prize via the dedicated post on the main page of the Celebrity Baby Blog.

York Region, has teamed up with Febe Bebe, Mump & Grump Studios and Small Made Simple for a great auction prize. We've donated $125 to the Newman Breastfeeding Clinic & Institute and on November 14 you'll be able to bid on our gift basket, worth over $300!!

Our basket will include....

  • bib & drooler set from Febe Bebe (retails for $36.00)
  • a 16x16 painting from Mump & Grump Studios (retails for $100)
  • a brown ring sling for wearing your baby (retails for $75)
