Do you believe that every mother who is physically able to should breastfeed?
Yes! There are far too many benefits to both child and mother not to unless there is a medical reason. Here in the USA we have free lactation consultants in every city for the people who can't afford them so that if they struggle they can get help. The benefits are just too much to miss out on.
I think it is a personal choice. It is certainly best for the child. I had one daughter who was breast fed for a very long time. My second child had some minor problems at birth, remaining in the hospital when I went home so she was not able to breast feed. Both girls are grown and healthy.
I think we have reached an age when formulas contain the necessary nutrients for the child's physical health. Personally I am really glad to have had that experience with my oldest daughter, but I wouldn't judge one who chooses not to breastfeed.
depending on the size of the breast! My breast is equally the size of my small rice bowl. So you could just imagine how small are my breast! When i was pregnant, the breasts were fuller and i was thankful that i could breastfeed my 1st child for a day. She was happy sucking. Unfortunately, i could press any milk out on the 2nd day and had to depend on powder milk to feed her. If you have a pair of breast that 3x bigger than mine, of course you should breastfeed your baby.
I dont' think so. I think breastfeeding is a choice. I personally breastfed but I don't think it's necessary. I understand the importance of breastfeeding, I did it. However, I don't think it's a bad thing if a mother chooses not to.
I don't think any woman should be forced to do something she is not comfortable with, but I do think breast feeding gives you baby and excellent and healthy start in life and I would encourage any expecting mother to educate herself completely on the subject. There are so many pluses for both mom and baby.
A woman should try to breastfeed if they believe that it's best for their baby (I do), but also if they believe it is best for them.
There's little point doing it and resenting it or being unhappy about it. If you do you probably won't be doing it for very long, as you won't give it your best and your baby might also pick up on your resentment and negativity. (Although even doing it for a short time is better for baby than not trying at all. The initial colostrum is great for a newborn, and the longer you can happily feed, the better).
It is a matter choice and some may not be able to. There are some women who are uncomfortable doing it. But they use a breast pump to put their milk in a bottle
It's a personal choice. They don't have to if they don't want to or are unable to. As long as they don't let their child starve or suffer from lack of nutrients, do whatever.
No, absolutely not. It's a personal decision each woman must make for herself. No matter what a mother chooses, the important thing is that her choice is respected by others.
