Breastfeeding Myths Debunked For The Skeptic

  1. We don’t know for sure if breastfeeding is best

Put simply, yes we do!

Every major pediatric organization and health organization says that breastmilk is the optimal primary food source for all babies for at least the first year.

CNBC reported:

“A number of health organizations, including WHO, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Medical Association, endorse breastfeeding as the best choice for babies.”

The American Academy of Pediatrics says that babies should be breastfed for the first year or longer while introducing solid foods at 6 months.

Reduced presence of asthma, diabetes, infections, obesity, and SIDS are found in breastfed babies, according to the CDC.

Mothers are not left out when it comes to the benefits of breastfeeding. They have lower risks of breast and ovarian cancer, diabetes, and high blood pressure, according to the CDC.
