It’s your baby. It’s your decision. This is an important decision…make it based on facts and your feelings, not on what you may have heard from others. If you are unsure about breastfeeding, the easiest way to figure it out is to try breastfeeding or talk to your WIC breastfeeding peer counselor.
Breastfeeding can fit into your lifestyle. Many mothers return to work while continuing to breastfeed. Moms on the go like the ease of breastfeeding because it requires very little planning - just grab baby and go.
Many mothers enjoy nursing past infancy. You and your baby will know when to wean. Meanwhile your baby continues to enjoy the many benefits of breast milk.
