Quotes about Breastfeeding

I came across some fun quotes about breastfeeding while looking for quotes for a scrapbook page. They gave me some much needed encouragement! Although it is going better now. Another bout of thrush came, but is almost gone! Her suck has improved with the craniosacral massage! It's getting better and though I still don't quite enjoy it, I know one day I will be able to say that I do :)

While breastfeeding may not seem the right choice for every parent, it is the best choice for every baby.  ~Amy Spangler

Nursing does not diminish the beauty of a woman's breasts; it enhances their charm by making them look lived in and happy.  ~Robert A. Heinlein

If a multinational company developed a product that was a nutritionally balanced and delicious food, a wonder drug that both prevented and treated disease, cost almost nothing to produce and could be delivered in quantities controlled by the consumers' needs, the very announcement of their find would send their shares rocketing to the top of the stock market.  The scientists who developed the product would win prizes and the wealth and influence of everyone involved would increase dramatically.  Women have been producing such a miraculous substance, breastmilk, since the beginning of human existence.  ~Gabrielle Palmer

Breast milk is better than any udder milk!  ~Author Unknown (I thought this one was cute)

People need to understand that when they're deciding between breastmilk and formula, they're not deciding between Coke and Pepsi.... They're choosing between a live, pure substance and a dead substance made with the cheapest oils available.  ~Chele Marmet
