Your comments really hit the nail on its head! The thing is, our society has drifted so far away from breastfeeding that it no longer becomes natural to us. I remember thinking that all mothers will know how to breastfeed and would have done so especially in my grandmothers' and mother's generation. However, it wasn't until later that I found that my grandmother fed my aunts and dad condensed milk when they were young! She said she was not free to breastfeed them as she had to work on the farm! Imagine my surprise! Then when it came to my mother and mother-in-law, that was the era where they were told that formula milk was better than breastmilk so they too did not breastfeed.
So... basically, breastfeeding is an art that was almost lost and now revived. To all mothers who choose to breastfeed, let's press on! It's definitely worth it when we see our children grow up strong and healthy.
P/S: I was fed on special milk formula as I wasn't able to digest normal formula when I was born. Imagine the amount of money my mother would have saved if I was breastfed! Heh... Food for thought.
