Many new mothers breastfeed their babies for just a short while.
Some breastfeed only during their maternity leave,
while others may continue until they claim their breastmilk is decreasing in amount and finally stop.
There are also those who find that breastfeeding is not really a joyful experience and quit.
And those who suddenly quit for no apparent reason.
Only a minority of mothers breastfeed their child successfully and exclusively (4-6months without any additional nutrition).
Why is this happening? This does not only happen to those who are poorly educated but also those who are the top in their field.
After some researches(informal), readings (books, journals magazines) and talking to other experienced mothers, I have some thoughts to share ( and some tips too).
All mothers SHOULD breastfeed their babies exclusively(unless medically adviced not to). I don't want to just promoting people to breastfeed, but to breastfeed exclusively.
There are differences in term of amount of milk consume, the lenght of time, the effort needed and the most importantly-the outcome.
But why many still hesitate?
Why many did not persevere?
Why many have tried but not successful?
It all begins with the optimal preparation of the MIND, BODY and EMOTION......
