That it is always pleasant and happy and warm and fuzzy! Too many women think they're failing when they don't get Kodal moments out of breastfeeding.

That a baby that eats constantly must not be gettig full so you must not be making enough milk.

That it's not worth it. - IT's absolutely worth it!

That it's too hard. - IT's NOT too hard, it is hard though.

That it's not for every mom. - IT's not possible for EVERY mom, but most it is. It's something that you owe your baby(IMO) at least attempt it. :)

That it's not nutritionally beneficial after one year.

The thing that makes me the angriest is that that little gem came from a doctor!!

That it ruins your breasts, its proven that has more to do with genetics and pregnancy than anything else

That you should give it up because everyone else bottle feeds because that's easy.

That foods that make us gassy make babies gassy. *Most* moms can eat whatever they like with no ill effect on baby.
