BLOWING THE HORN! ON SOME COMMON BREASTFEEDING MYTHS.


I LOVE HER BOOBS. THEY’LL SAG IF SHE BREASTFEEDS.

There’s little connection between breastfeeding and saggy boobs. The pregnancy itself could cause some sagging and smoking doesn’t help, but breastfeeding is in the clear!

SHE WON’T BE ABLE TO EAT OR DRINK WHAT SHE WANTS.
There’s nothing she has to avoid eating or drinking, as long as she has a sensible, balanced diet. Too much alcohol isn’t a good idea, but the odd tipple will do no harm.

SHE’S SMALL AND PERKY. SHE MIGHT NOT MAKE ENOUGH MILK.
Complete and utter rubbish. As far as your baby is concerned, size is irrelevant.

BREASTFEEDING IS MORE HASSLE THAN BOTTLEFEEDING.
Buying formula, sterilising bottles, measuring powder, boiling the kettle, checking the temperature… all in the middle of the night. Are you kidding!?

I WON’T BOND WITH THE BABY.
Breastfeeding is only one way to bond with your baby—there are lots of others. See the next edition of The Star for a full run down of these.
