Breastfeeding 101: A Buying Guide to Shopping with Your FSA

Got a bundle of joy on the way? In your scramble to prepare your home and every aspect of your life for your new baby, one of the most important decisions you'll make as a new mother is whether or not to breastfeed.

Today, the medical community resoundingly endorses breastfeeding, and the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development attests that breastfeeding has many known health benefits, including, "nutritionally balanced meals, some protection against common childhood infections, and better survival during the first year of life, including a lower risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)."

If you do decide to breastfeed, preparing is made easier if you are enrolled in a flexible spending account (FSA)! Your FSA covers a huge range of qualifying breastfeeding kits, supplies and accessories, so there's no reason not to save on this important expense!

We've created a breastfeeding buying guide just for you so you'll have everything you need to get started off right!
