Who knew that something that is seemingly so natural has so much misinformation, prejudice and mystery around it?
Here are some links that I have found invaluable in my breastfeeding journey so far:

The World Health Organization’s Global strategy for infant and young child feeding says:
“As a global public health recommendation, infants should be exclusively breastfed for the first six months of life to achieve optimal growth, development and health. Thereafter, to meet their evolving nutritional requirements, infants should receive nutritionally adequate and safe complementary foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond.”
