4 Sisters, 4 Babies, 4 Days

Wow, what and amazing week! I just love thinking about how close those 4 kids will be, what a fantastic bond....and just think about the joint birthday party potential! :) Congrats to all the new mommies and daddies!!

CHICAGO — Four sisters from one family have each given birth within four days.

That's four sisters, four babies, four days.

The same obstetrician delivered the babies of three of the sisters — 27-year-old Lilian Sepulveda of Franklin Park, 29-year-old Saby Pazos of Bellwood and 24-year-old Leslie Pazos of Stone Park.

The three sisters gave birth at Westlake Hospital in Melrose Park on Friday and Saturday. A fourth sister — Heidi Lopez — had her baby on Monday in California.

Family members say the women didn't plan the timing. Obstetrician Dr. Jean Alexandre, who delivered the three babies in suburban Chicago, calls the births "very unusual but wonderful at the same time.",2933,599182,00.html

World Breastfeeding Week

World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated every year from 1 to 7 August in more than 120 countries to encourage breastfeeding and improve the health of babies around the world. It commemorates the Innocenti Declaration made by WHO (World Health Organization)and UNICEF policy-makers in August 1990 to protect, promote and support breastfeeding.

Breastfeeding is the best way to provide newborns with the nutrients they need. WHO recommends exclusive breastfeeding until a baby is six months old, and continued breastfeeding with the addition of nutritious complementary foods for up to two years or beyond.
