Breastfeeding is Love

We are a breastfeeding community, designed to educate, encourage and support each other. We accept mommies to be who are interested in breastfeeding, mommies who are currently breastfeeding and experienced breastfeeding mommas here to give advice to others. We follow the advice of the La Leche League (LLL) & the World Health Organization (WHO) and any advice given that goes against this will not be tolerated. We do not support supplementing with human milk substitutes or giving up for any reason (unless absolutely medically necessary), and we do not accept any excuses for giving up (unless absolutely medically necessary). Breastfeeding is not a "choice", it is every. single. baby's. birth-RIGHT. It is your responsibility as a Mother. We are all here to support one another in this journey that can be simple for some and very difficult for others. We are here to help you! If you are currently supplementing but would like to get your baby back to breast or 100% breast milk, we welcome you! You can do this!!!!
