Breastfeeding is a big part of being a mother, even though it is as natural as giving birth, it does require practice, patience, and a little bit of understand of how it works.

With all the research I did to prepare myself for my at home delivery, breastfeeding was one of the topics I least delved into. My assumption was that my body and baby would naturally get together, that was that. I was in for a surprise of how I underestimated the task.

“Breast-feeding is more than being a good mom. And breast milk is much more than food: It’s potent medicine and, simultaneously, a powerful medium of communication between mothers and their babies.”

101 Reasons to Breastfeed Your Child

Breastmilk uses:

Freeze breastmilk in syringes for boo-boos, pink eye and colds! Brilliant!!!:

Human Breast milk is essential for Human baby development, no manufactured or stolen milk substitute was created by nature with the intention to ever be in OUR babies bodies.

Formula milk is laden with Sugar, Toxic chemicals, Fluoride,   and S(i)nthetic “minerals” that our adults body cannot properly digest let alone a developing child.

Toxic Baby Formula

“Nearly all commercial infant formulas contain substances your infant is better off avoiding, like corn syrup and AGEs, but it also is lacking in other key components that breast milk naturally provides. Chief among these are probiotics, friendly bacteria that help your body to thrive. Many infant formulas are more than 50 percent sugar — 43 percent being corn syrup solids, which means they’re also high in fructose. Metabolically, consuming fructose is very similar to alcohol on a chronic basis, so there appears to be a surprising similarity between giving your infant a can of soda, or a bottle of most conventional infant formulas.”  -Dr. Mercola

“Human milk isn’t sterile—it’s very much alive, filled with good bacteria, much like yogurt and naturally fermented pickles and kefir, that keep our digestive systems functioning properly. So mother’s milk contains not only the bacteria necessary to help a baby break down food, but the food for the bacteria themselves to thrive. A breast-feeding mother isn’t keeping one organism alive—but actually hundreds of thousands of them.”

Disturbing Mystery Food Given to Children

Crazy to see this on Pinterest. A nurse at my work created the poster. Public Health nurse Surrey, BC:

“…infants desperately need the natural vitamins found in breast milk. Nutritional deficiencies place infants at risk of developmental problems and infantile death. The commercial infant formulas are not a healthy option. The inability of manufacturers to properly mimic human breast milk and vitamins is shown in the reduced immune systems of children who are fed infant formulas. Statistics show that the nutritional deficiencies caused by infant formulas vastly increase the likelihood of childhood health.”

The More I Learn About Breast Milk, the More Amazed I Am

Why you should breast feed:

The first week of breastfeeding is the hardest, I had to supplement with pumped milk, due to a poor latch every feeding was very painful for me. After a month, we developed a better latch and I was no longer experiencing pain. In retrospect, I would have reduced the amount of times I used the pump vs breastfeeding. For a month my baby experienced colic/gas from air-swallowing due to the bottles, I experience painful engorgement and an imbalance of my fore-milk/hind-milk that toke months to correct. Fore-milk is very high in lactose, having an over supply leads to baby receiving more watery fore-milk vs the nutrient rich hind-milk, to much fore-milk can cause intestinal discomfort.

Breastfeeding is uncomfortable, even painful. The nipples may look squashed or sculpted when they come out of baby’s mouth. The nipple skin may be cracked or blistered. When baby is latched well, the nipple goes deep into baby’s mouth, right to the back. The baby’s tongue does most of the work in getting the milk out; if the nipple is not far enough back, the tongue will rub or press on the nipple and cause pain.”
