New mothers often receive mixed advice and varying opinions about the process of breastfeeding which could be misleading. Check the truth behind the most common misconceptions a lactating mother has ever heard of!

  • MYTH: MODERN MILK FORMULAS ARE ALMOST THE SAME AS BREAST MILK

TRUTH: Breast milk is the Best! No milk can replace that. It’s been proven and tested that breast milk has over 300 ingredients while formula possess only 40 which are artificially made.

  • MYTH: BREASTFEEDING MOMS HAVE TO BE CAREFUL ABOUT WHAT THEY EAT/DRINK

TRUTH: Most babies are not troubled with gassy/spicy foods or caffeine etc., that their moms eat or drink. Everything in moderation is fine unless your baby’s behaviour is telling you otherwise.

  • MYTH: SICK MOMS SHOULDN’T BREASTFEED

TRUTH: Moms can continue to breastfeed, it’s believed to actually protect the baby from catching the same infection as the mother has.

  • MYTH: MOMS WITH SMALL BREASTS CAN’T MAKE ENOUGH MILK

TRUTH: False. Breast size doesn’t matter at all. Milk production has nothing to do with breast size.

  • MYTH: IT’S NORMAL FOR BREASTFEEDING TO HURT

TRUTH: No, it’s not true. It’s common to have some tenderness during the first few days and it doesn’t last long. Breast milk contains components that help heal your breast nipples when they’re sore, that is, your milk itself can give you some relief.
