|8 Out Of 10 Mums Say|
90% of the World's mums breastfeed and it really is the most natural thing in the world!
75% of women in the UK now start breastfeeding as opposed to 50% in the '70s!
Because few women grow up seeing women around them breastfeeding, it's become more difficult to learn.
Learning about the ins and outs of breastfeeding is really important as the more a woman knows about how breastfeeding works, the more likely she is to succeed.
Boob size is irrelevant. Almost anyone can breastfeed. Women with breasts of all shapes and sizes have successfully breastfed.
Breastfeeding doesn't ruin every woman's breasts! Once you have finished feeding, they will return to approximately their pre-pregnant size although some mums find their boobs a size smaller!
Inverted or flat nipples aren't a problem and many women with inverted or flat nipples breastfeed with little or no help.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommend that a baby is exclusively breastfed for a minimum of six months, with continued feeding for two years and beyond.
Of course you can feed your toddler even if you are pregnant with another baby!
If you exclusively breastfeed, then it's possible that your periods may not return for anything up to a year. However, breastfeeding should not be relied upon as a method of contraception.
