Not all women can breastfeed

I am a mom of 5 kids, and I was able to breast feed all of them. I too had problems in the beginning, but was able to work through them. Sometimes all it takes is relaxing, because the hormones are fickle and can reduce the flow of milk.

Other times, mom just has a hard time feeding her baby or producing milk.

I am proud of myself for being able to work through my problems. My kids and I were a success. But in no way do I feel superior to those women who tried and did not succeed at breastfeeding.

In my opinion, the fact that any woman wants to breastfeed and gives it her all speaks volumes.

Whether you breastfeed or formula feed, you are feeding your baby. Take pride in giving your child your love, your attention, and the time to care. Just as everyone has muscles, but not everyone can walk, every woman has breasts, but not all women can breastfeed.
