A couple weeks ago, I came across a post from a mom in a Facebook group. She was upset because she had made the decision to breastfeed and everyone around her was giving her a negative reaction.
Now I thought this was rare because in my experience, people are so very much pro-breastfeeding. (Side note: This is not meant to be a debate post. Fed is best!)
But then a friend of mine, who just became a mom, made another post just like it. It made me wonder…just how many young women are being encouraged not to breastfeed?
Of course, there are reasons why women can’t breastfeed or end up having to supplement. But that’s a post for another day. Here are 4 ignorant things people say about breastfeeding and why you shouldn’t let any of them change your decision to breastfeed.
