Breastfeeding in a birthing book (positive)

Post by jessles » Tue Jul 01, 2014 2:49 pm

I borrowed a book from the library to read in preparation for birth that was from the UK. It was all about active birth and a few other things, but it had a chapter on breastfeeding. It was a really positive chapter on breastfeeding which I thought was great.

The chapter started with the following quotes:

"Breastfeeding problems are greatest in societies where everyone wears a watch and least in societies where no one wears a watch" - Jack Newman (a Canadian dr who specialises in breastfeeding support and advocacy).

"Feed like a gypsy. Take no notice of the clock" - Grandmother Wisdom

I thought these were interesting quotes.

Here's to turning into a gypsy :lol:
