Main points: We are the only living thing on earth that drinks another animal’s milk. Mothers lactate to be able to provide for their child yet some parents would rather spend extra money on formula. There are benefits to children, families, and the community.
I believe this article is important because it gives you pointers why you should breastfeed your child. I believe every mother should try and breastfeed for at least the first year of a child’s life. Breastfeeding has many advantages for mother and child such as attachment and health benefits for the child.
Any mother skeptical on breastfeeding I would recommend reading this. It has good points and a few reference links that support the article.
