Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is the process of a woman feeding an infant or young child with milk produced from her breasts, usually directly from the nipples.

Babies have a sucking urge that usually enables them to take in the milk, provided there is a good latch, a detached frenulum, and a milk supply.

Breast milk has been shown to be best for feeding a child if the mother does not have any transmissible infections.

Nevertheless, some mothers do not breastfeed their children.
