The mother receives a daily vacation through breastfeeding. Relaxing and pleasurable hormones are released, and this stimulates a feeling of love and connection with your child.

Breastfeeding can occur 10-30 times or more a day. Good nurturing breast feedings can last as long as an hour, this allows the hind milk to come through. (this is not all the time, just every few feedings)

(Myth) Children need to breast feed 3-9 months and then they need to wean
(Truth) Children need to breast feed for several years. Breast milk is the ideal food. Early weaning does not honor nature’s continuum, which designed children, to be children, for many years. Early weaning forces them to mature too rapidly.

(Myth) Infant formula is an acceptable alternative to breast milk
(Truth) Only homemade infant formula as described by the Weston Price Foundation, which includes raw grassfed milk, or bone broths, provides the adequate nutrients to support health and growth.

Nature designed you and your infant for a program of breastfeeding.
