Baby, oh baby now here’s a doozy. A young woman is about to give birth to her first baby and she writes in with this dilemma. Her boyfriend, with whom she is excited to start a family and this new phase of her life, is totally NOT on board with her breast feeding.
What makes this particularly tough is that we know breastfeeding is one of the best things that mothers can do for their babies and for themselves, and given the natural antibodies that are passed along to baby, it seems like a win-win, right? In this case, at least one person is not convinced.
What should our mother-to-be do? Is there a way for her to convince her boyfriend that this is what she really wants and that this is best for everyone or should she give in to him, just to keep the peace?
