On the news today I heard the Australian government are going to use an ad campaign to try and encourage parents to breastfeed their babies until at least a year old.
I believe if mothers were taught to breastfeed on a routine from day one in hospital with the 6 minute, 9 minute until their milk came in approach this would be much more successful than an add campaign, in fact I am going to twitter Kevin now and tell him LOL.
What amazes me is out of all my close friends (not clients and other breastfeeding mums i know) who started out breastfeeding the only two I know who fed until a year were the two who followed a routine from day one. All my other friends had given up by 6 months or earlier.
People too often think if they move to formula the sleep and behavioural problems will vanish but as I say in my book along with formula comes a routine.
