'Breastfeeding Myths Debunked' - Frequent nursing sessions cause problems
Frequent nursing sessions cause problems is the myth we are debunking today.
Some of the problems frequent nursing supposedly causes are poor milk production, weak let-down responses, unsuccessful nursing, postpartum depression, problems with mom/dad's relationship, and obesity later in life. None of these are true.
Frequent nursing actually helps milk production, let-down and being successful. Nursing on demand is important to the health of your breastfeeding experience. Frequent nursing usually only lasts such a short time (first couple of months with many babies) that it shouldn't cause any problems with mom/dad's relationship. Breastfeeding on demand also helps babies to learn when they are hungry and when they're not.
