It's something many "moms-to-be" and nursing mothers do on an hourly basis - breastfeeding, that is. And yet, many of them suffer in silence from the symptoms that go along with it.

Some experts say, breastfeeding should be more than just a lifestyle choice, it should be viewed as an investment in the short and long term health of your child. But, this commitment can be both time consuming and for many women, painful.

Among it's benefits, some doctors say breastfeeding can reduce the risk of breast, uterine and ovarian cancer, as well as, type 2 diabetes and osteoporosis. Meanwhile infants who are breastfed, may be at a lower risk for illnesses and show heightened immune systems as they mature. 

Rachel Jackson is a working mom who lives in Buffalo and says her experience of trying to juggle her demanding work schedule around the needs of her children was challenging. As an attorney, treating the symptoms she experienced in a convenient, discrete, effective and safe way was nearly impossible. 

So, she invented her own remedy, called "Rachel's Remedy" to help mothers like her everywhere, as quickly, conveniently and affordably as possible. 

Right now, these Breastfeeding Relief Packs are selling out online and on shelves at $29.95 a box, each with two reusable natural relief packs. J

Jackson says, since the company first started two years ago, business has been booming and a big thanks goes to the Western New York community.
