Maybe they are just selfish and only care about their figure. In my Country, Women are proud to say that they breast-feed their child.
It has all the nutrients a newborn child needs and will make the baby strong against sickness.
Some mothers do this for a month then they turn to formula milk. To supply more if the doctors persist.
We even have sections in the mall where they can breast-feed their babies. And every year in Manila, the largest number of breast-feeding mothers participate for the world-record.
There are a lot of reasons why. For me it wasn't really an option- Layla wasn't latching on and I had problems with my breasts that made it harder for her to latch on, on top of that my milk didn't come in for 4 days. So here I am with a baby that doesn't want to latch, breasts that aren't helping me out and I'm looking for milk that isn't even there, and on top of that I have a newborn baby to take care of. My stress was through the roof, so I had to destress myself for my mental state of mind and I eliminated breast feeding and it made me relax and be able to enjoy my baby. That being said, my daughter has been on formula for 6 months, never been sick and has never even had a negative reaction from a vaccine. I have been sick twice since she was born- she never got it- and her cousin who is breast fed got an awful cold at 2 months. Now everyone says formula is AWFUL and you NEED TO BREASTFEED but my baby is doing just fine and she has never been sick.
Losing weight by breast-feeding According to a popular belief, breast-feeding makes you lose weight rather than put on. "Producing milk for baby takes a lot of extra energy, about 200 to 500 extra calories above what mom needs to maintain her... read more
