“Recently my best friend started to breastfeed. I have been breastfeeding for 4 months now. When we discussed our reasons behind breastfeeding, I realized that we had different priorities when starting. I was obsessed with Lucia having breast milk and thought that nothing else was good enough. She mentioned breastfeeding being all about the bond she and baby would develop. Now that I’m four months into it, I realize that the bond Lucia and I have developed is something to truly appreciate, but it was not my main motivation to breastfeed. I am just curious about other moms out there. What are your reasons for breastfeeding? To help lose the baby weight? Bond with baby? Save money? Provide nutrients? What motivates other moms?”
