Food Friday : Breastfeeding

There are all kinds of peculiar myths about breastfeeding. You may have heard that it is difficult and painful. You may feel too bashful to do it. But I would like to encourage everyone to give it strong, evidence based consideration, because I think it is one of the most gratifying aspects of having a young baby. It does take a little learning, and a little getting used to, but it is more than worth effort. Most first timers take about 7-10 days to get used to it and then they have it down. It is best for babies nutrition, immunity, brain development, teeth, etc etc. For mom, it helps with minimizing post partum blood loss. It hastens return to pre pregnancy weight. Finally, it is convenient and cost effective.
