Comment:I am really opposed to formula feeding. I just had my son in June 2010 and I went straight into breastfeeding exclusivly; I was good for the 2 months, till his 2 month check up when the doctors were "worried" because he only weighed 8 lbs 6.9 oz. when he should be 10 lbs or over, so they told me to supplement with formula at every feeding, otherwise they'll have to do labs on him (if he didnt improve in 1 month to gain 2 lbs in 1 month) and to see whats "wrong" with the care-giver. Astaghfirallah, so I was forced to start using some formula in order not to have CPS called on me for something stupid, but I still do mostly breastfeeding still, im only using some formula to put some weight on him, than after that taking him off once my formula cans are done and not going back insha'allah.

Comment:I strongly recomend BF, and strongly oppose to formula.Formula is nothing but chemicals.Belive me, formula is the number one cause for ruining my life, as it doesn't make you strong phsically or mentally.That's why I devoted myself alhamdullillah to full time BF and no bottle for even a day.all kids 2 years except first only 21months because I was a beginer.So stay awayfrom formulas.Inshallah the more muslimahs BF the more intellectual umma we'll have as they'll be doctors, professors and other highly educated professionals.

Comment:May Allah SWT reward the sister who wrote the article on Islam and breastfeeding. I breastfed my 1st 4 yr old son for 2 years Alhamdolillah and the main motivation was the reward from Allah otherwise I would have given up at about 1 or 1 1/2 years. In one ahadith of the Prophet SAW he SAW said that when a woman finished breastfeeding the angels come down and pat her back and say that all her past sins are forgiven. Practically I struggled at the begining but when I let him suck more and increased the amount of fluids I was drinking (I used to drink a glass of something every hour to establish my milk flow)my milk also increased and he was satisfied. I do find that the lack of support from some family members was becasue of their own ignorance of not understanding how long it takes to breastfeed a child and that potentially every woman IS good enough to breastfeed. It is hard with my second baby who is 5 months now because sometimes his morning feed is delayed due to the school run, but I have perservered with it and it is much easier now. The culture of the 1960's and '70's and even 80's has to change now and we should encourage each other to breastfeed-indeed if it wasn;t for the support of my friends who were already breasfeeding to give me tips at the beginging then I couldn't have done it!Thanks!

Comment:I am a mother of 2 daughters, however, i was not success to breast feed exclusively. i don't mean not to support breastfeeding, i really like to breast feed my children fully but i don't know why i find my breast milk not enough. Is it because of my nutrition status. For your knowledge, i breast feed my child less than 2 hours inorder to maintain lactation.Please help me. Inang.

Comment:This was a clear explanation about breast feeding and I totally agree with it however there is the issue that some of us as Women we cannot breasfeed - i'm sure it's not only me - I've got two wonderful sons 4 yrs old and 2 yrs old now however my breastfeeding days were not very long at all and it was barely about 2 months first time round and about 1 week second time around and up to now this plays on my mind why this happened to me as I would have loved to breastfeed my children. Insha Allah next time

Comment:I am a proud mother of Ahmad whom I breastfed for a good 18 months. He just turned 2 on 16th Sept 04. I was lucky as I got all the support from my husband and parents during those BF days. For me, support is one vital aspect that really helps, be it from your family members or from other BF mothers. The technical part of it was slightly difficult only during the first two weeks. After that it was like a second nature to me, just like changing diapers or bathing the baby. So, for all muslimahs out there, do not hesitate to breastfeed as that is one special gift that only YOU can give to your precious one.
