Unfortunately, not everything we hear about a topic is factual. People make stuff up all the time, or are simply misinformed and pass that misinformation onto others. This is extremely true with breastfeeding. All mothers have different stories, experiences, and friends or family. This leads to completely different conceptions and “advice” being given to new and expectant mothers. We hope we can clear up a bit of the confusion for you, and help you (or the new mother you know) feel confident. If there are any questions that remain unanswered, please don’t hesitate to set up an appointment with your pediatrician or a lactation consultant.
