Why should I breastfeed continued...

Breastfeeding makes your life simpler and easier! Babies who breastfeed also have better brain development and do better on IQ tests. Mothers who breastfeed have less bleeding after childbirth and lose weight sooner. They have less risk of breast, ovarian, and uterine cancer! If the above are not reasons enough, think about the time and money that will be saved. Parents who breastfeed save more than $1,000 (US) the first year by not having to spend money on formula and such. It's also proven that parents will miss fewer days of work. (Breastfeeding, Spangler, A. )

If you're struggling with the decision about wether or not to breastfeed it's normal.  Learn all you can and don't be afraid to stand your ground.  If you decide breastfeeding is your lane then stick to it and don't let others tell you what's best for you and your babe. Breast is best, it's what your baby is intended to survive on.  It's the perfect food for your baby!
