Alicia Silverstone: Breast Milk Sharing Pioneer
She’s always been a strong proponent for natural healthy living, and Alicia Silverstone wants to help mothers give their kids the best in breast milk.
The “Clueless” cutie announced her new Kind Mama Milk Share program, designed to help moms who have trouble with lactation find other mothers who eat nutritious diets and produce plenty of milk.
Alicia blogged, "Because we are a community of beautiful souls who recognize the importance of food as health, I say we help support those mamas and babies who need a hand during one of the most important times in their lives."
“If you have milk to share – post it! If you are in need of milk – post it! Think of all the babies we can help raise together!"
Silverstone also shared a personal story of a friend who had complications that made it hard to produce enough milk for her baby. "She tried reaching out in her community for donor milk, but it was almost impossible to figure out what kind of lifestyle choices the donors had made. And after all that hard work keeping herself vibrant and healthy, she felt she had a right to demand better for her baby."
