No matter what any one tells you, breast is best!
Breast milk is best for you and your baby, and the benefits of breastfeeding extend well beyond basic nutrition. In addition to containing all the vitamins and nutrients your baby needs in the first six months of life, breast milk is packed with disease-fighting substances that protect your baby from illness.
I have been labeled somewhat of a breastfeeding fanatic. I prefer the term breastfeeding advocate. I never thought much about breastfeeding before I was pregnant, nor did I think much about it while I was pregnant. But now I’m with my baby girl, there’s nothing I’d rather do.
I’m not necessarily a wholesome and super health conscious type of person. But I do what I can… and since breast milk is the super food of the year, no, of the century (and far beyond)… I hope to extend this breastfeeding journey for as long as possible.
