And how to correct them…
How many of you wake your baby up and feed them because you think it has been a long time since they have last fed? How many of you think that breastfeeding is a choice? How many of you were told that ghee will increase your milk supply? How many of you were forced to discard your colostrum? How many of you think it is necessary to wean your baby off because they will get clingy? How many of you struggle while sitting and feeding your baby at nights?
If you have had any of the above doubts, you have reached the right place because here I have written all the myths that should be busted in order not to confuse new moms all over the world. Of course, there are several myths around breastfeeding, but here I have covered the ones I had come across and researched about with the help of gynaecologists, nutritionists and dieticians:
I was not aware of half the things mentioned above when I became a new mom though I was smarter the second time around. I barely had the chance to read articles that helped me during my first pregnancy and delivery, so, I find it a matter of pride to be able to help new moms today.
Though you are bound to come across more weird and funny myths around breastfeeding, be aware and listen to your heart instead. Listen to your baby and you will avoid a great deal of confusion and anger associated with post-partum depression too. All the best!
