Breastfeeding is still considered taboo.
People often prevent mothers from nursing their baby the way they want.
And for as long as they want.
Almost every breastfeeding mother has had to fight the battle of the stereotypes that people have about them.
They all wear the battle scars of breastfeeding silently.
The negativity and blatant shaming which they face daily is really painful.
Many also think breastfeeding is a simple and easy task.
They say every mother goes through it so there’s nothing to praise or be thankful for.
Many also feel women should not breastfeed at public places or in front of others.
Those who do and break the rules are stereotyped.
Many often forgot that everyone grew up that way.
To be precise, breastfeeding is not always simple or easy.
Breastfeeding presents a series of challenges that range from physical to emotional.
Only those who’ve gone through it can know the experience.
It is a really challenging task, especially the first time.
It is not for every mother, or for every child.
And sometimes it isn’t even a choice.
It has something to do with the bond that a mother has with her child.
Not every woman would love to do the job.
We need to respect and support the difficult decisions all mothers make to provide what is best for their babies.
We need to bring awareness about a topic that still remains taboo. Make mothers feel proud of, and celebrate, everything they do to provide what is best for their child.
