Over the past few months when breast feeding my 11 month old had a few mum's ask me why? as they where told by mid wife's and plunket nurses to go to the bottle when baby wasn't sleeping as well or milk supply was down.
What about recommending plenty of rest, healthy diet and alot of water. Supplements if needed and starting solids at 4 months if needed. World Health Organazation recommend Breast feeding to age of 2, so why are mid-wifes and plunket saying the opposite?
Yes some women can't feed and do try everything first, but alot seem lazy and give up.
I breast feed 3 children now and seen the benefits of doing so.
