TLC midwife service believe that breastfeeding is the optimal feeding method for almost all babies. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics concur and state that, “breastfeeding and the use of human milk confer unique nutritional and non nutritional benefits to the infant and the mother and, in turn, optimize infant, child, and adult health as well as child growth and development. Recently, published evidence-based studies have confirmed and quantitated the risks of not breastfeeding. Thus, infant feeding should not be considered as a lifestyle choice but rather as a basic health issue. As such, the pediatrician’s role in advocating and supporting proper breastfeeding practices is essential and vital for the achievement of this preferred public health goal” Eidelman, A. & Schenler, R. “Executive Summary Breastfeeding and the Use of Human Milk.” PEDIATRICS Volume 129, Number 3, March 2012.
