The wonders of breast milk

Did you know that a mothers breastmilk is rich in live stem cells! This supports your child´s immunity for life. It is recommended to breastfeed your baby for at least 12 months if not longer. There is not a substitute - apart from another Mothers milk. Boiled, diluted cows milk would be next best option. This technique does not come as naturally for all women, it is a learnt technique that usually is best learnt by seeing and or having support from a family member or nurse. There is plenty of support available nowadays and it may take time to really get the swing of it. Persistence is a virtue in this divine period.
