Breastfeeding Myth #1 - Wine!
10 Breastfeeding Myths Busted!
There are so many myths surrounding breastfeeding, and many have been around for years - despite research demonstrating that they are untrue. So I’m starting a little series of posts to bust some of the breastfeeding myths - as many of them can put off or discourage breastfeeding or make women feel in some way crap. And that is definitely something I do not want!
Number one is perhaps the most important - the myth that you cannot drink alcohol when you’re breastfeeding. Utter rubbish….read on to learn some basics and rules that allow you to enjoy a glass (if you want to).
There is much about breastfeeding that is thought to be ‘truth’ that actually isn’t. You often hear contradictory stuff, and it can be SO confusing (especially if you’ve had not the most sleep ever….) And when you are doing your damn best to feed a small person, you really need to know fact from fiction - so you can make informed choices that are right for YOU. That’s what’s important. So here’s a post that I am really passionate about - sorting out some of those breastfeeding myths.
