This week marks world breastfeeding week, organised by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action. This week aims to inform, anchor, engage and galvanise action on breastfeeding and related issues.
There is an expectation that breastfeeding is easy and that it comes naturally to every single mother and baby. This isn’t true at all. While breastfeeding is one of life’s most natural phenomenon's it certainly doesn't come naturally to most with practice instead being the key to success.
