'Breast is best' message failing

Comment

I breast fed my daughter but only lasted 8 wks due to how painfull it became. I felt awfull that i couldn't do it but was appalled that blood was coming out with my milk!. I neva recieved any support from any midwives etc and felt totally alone. I think that women should try to breasty feed if they so wish. BUT there should be more support for them, if more women have better expereinces of breast feeding then they are more likely to recommend it to their friends and famillies. As for the stupid comment that women worry about their figures it is a fact that the sucklin g action on the boobs pulls the womb in quicker!!!.
