Doutzen Kroes is encouraging moms everywhere to go the way of breastfeeding. The supermodel recently shared a picture of herself while preparing to nurture Myllena.
“Daily routine! I’m promoting breastfeeding, it’s the best for your baby when possible,” wrote the star. Doutzen also shared a picture of herself using a breastfeeding pump.
There are numerous benefits associated with nursing. In addition to protecting your child from a myriad of illnesses, breastfeeding can reduce the possibility of you experiencing postpartum depression. After analyzing several thousand abstracts, the National Institutes of Health determined that women who did not nurse, or stopped breastfeeding early, were at higher risk of developing postpartum depression than those who nursed for the entire period.
Doutzen is one of several celebrity moms who have used social media to spread the good news about natural remedies when caring for baby. Apryl Jones, girlfriend of Omarion, has also encouraged moms of newborns to nurse their children on Instagram.
Doutzen Kroes has two kids with Sunnery James. Myllena was born on July 30, 2014.
