Its a shame hospitals don't pay any attention to articles like this as they end up giving new mum bad advice then send them home after a few days not having a clue and then the new mum gets all stressed out which is no good for mum or baby

Doctors and hospitals regarding breastfeeding
by: Hope

Hi Lynda

I agree with you. I found out the other day, here in South Africa, doctors are only given a half hour training session on breastfeeding! No wonder that there is not enough support out there!

I was appalled when I went to the clinic, each time I would go, I would get some negative remark about breastfeeding from the nurse! Once she told me to wean my 1 1/2 year old, coz breastfeeding can ruin her teeth, if she breastfeeds at night!! Another one, "your baby should not be breastfeeding still, she will not eat enough solid"

They really have no clue!
