Breastfeeding is becoming a “phase” in this century of time.  Many mother’s around the world make decisions to nurse naturally rather than through a bottle. Breastfeeding provides ideal nourishment and a special bonding experience that many nursing mothers cherish. It has many benefits for the child as well as for the mother.  By breastfeeding, mothers are providing their baby with a convenient, free milk that naturally contains many of the vitamins and minerals that a newborn requires. In today’s society, breastfeeding is a common choice and is developing a norm across the world.
