Feeling good about how we feed our babies
Another Duty Mistake
The duty mistake can also cause us to treat women as if they should only breastfeed if it is believed to be necessary for health reasons.
We’ll explain in a moment why this is a mistake.
This kind of thinking leads to:
Calls for women to justify why they are breastfeeding:
Frankie’s story: “I got so tired of being told that I should stop breastfeeding because people think there are no benefits after 6 months. Of course, there are still lots of benefits. But why isn’t it enough that we both want to keep going?”
The Breast VS Formula Milk Debate.
Again, this is bad for all parents, no matter how they feed their babies.
