With the recent studies showing that breastfeeding is even better for babies than we first thought, why is it still seen in a “taboo” light sometimes? I look at different perspectives here.

My understanding and after speaking with these women is that breastfeeding is no easy task and some women aren’t able to. I hope this article provides some insight into something that is, in my opinion, a natural part of life.
