Breastfeeding is essential for healthy growth and development of your baby and crucial for mother-infant bonding. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the World Health Organization (WHO) currently recommends exclusively breastfeeding for the first six months of your baby’s life (1).
Breastfeeding has to be done properly because during the first few months it is very important for your baby to get all the essential nutrients and antibodies which altogether cannot be supplied by any formula milk (2).
But sometimes it is challenging because it does not come easy to everyone. Remember, breastfeeding is a learned behaviour for both child and mother. It takes time and effort to build this relationship. That is where lactation a consultant comes in! If you are going to become a mother, you have to come to the right place.
