Pro-breastfeeding pediatrician?

If you are experiencing difficulties with supply, latch, or any other aspect of breastfeeding, your nearest La Leche League Leader or lactation consultant can help you breastfeed more. Aspiring physicians do not study breastfeeding in medical school. Nor do they study food. If you are able to lactate and your baby is able to latch on, then what you need to do, rain or shine, in sickness and in health, is nurse, nurse, nurse.

Maternity Benefit Act, 1961

The Maternity Benefits Act provides for two nursing breaks for every nursing mother until her child is 15 months old. This is in addition to the normal lunch break and other breaks that all workers get. Every woman should defend her right to nursing breaks and see that employers follow the law protecting breastfeeding mothers and children.

Nursing Kurta

You are of course free to nurse your baby anytime, anywhere and in any wear. Try the nursing kurta and see if it helps you achieve total nursing freedom.

How children learn to eat

Breastfeeding is a child’s first introduction to the flavor of everything the family eats. The longer children breastfeed, the more time they have to get acquainted with foods through their mothers’ milk. Breastfeeding also serves as a safety net ensuring that nutritional needs are met, allowing leisurely adoption of new foods.
