Breastfeeding

I never understood the benefits of breastfeeding until I started taking classes and researching about it. There are sooo many benefits to breastfeeding, and I don’t understand why people wouldn’t want to at least try it.

Before we became a more technology/modern society, women used to breastfeed their children. There was no such thing called “formula”. In fact, formula has only been around since the late 1800s. I don’t know about you, but that’s not a long time. If people weren’t using formula until then…what were they using??? Their breast.

I strongly believe because we live in an over sexualized world now, people cannot fathom the idea of children getting their food from the same source men use for pleasure. However, I’m here to tell you that breast were not created for pleasure. They were created as a way to provide children with the nutrition they need.

I’m not writing this to convince anyone to throw away the formula and breastfeed. While it’s the best food for our babies, I think we should consider all the options available to us and make an informed decision. I have attached two articles to this post today. One of the articles outline the timeline of breastfeeding and the other list the importance of breastfeeding.

While I have lots to learn about breastfeeding, I am excited to share my journey with you! I have made a commitment to breastfeed for the first year and a half of my child’s life. Woah!! I know, but I believe with patience, faith, and determination, I will succeed!

Until next time, XOXO

  1. Hey, so happy for you! I set my goal for 1 year and made it just shy of two years! You are going to do great! Have you looked up the benefits for you too?! And you’re absolutely right formula not being invented until the 1800s, did you find out why it was invented? That’s even more shocking! It was never even intended to be the primary source of nutrition.

    1. Hey! I have researched a ton about the benefits for me and that’s why I’m more so determined than ever lol I never knew it wasn’t meant to be the primary source. That’s something I am definitely going to look into. From my understanding, it’s more of a connivence for working women. Breastfeeding takes time and patience. Whereas, formulas is fast and easy.
