Comment:I am so pleased to read an article re-emphasizing the importance of breastfeeding and the great spiritual/emotional connection between mother and child as a result of nursing. Nice work!

Comment:I breastfed my daughter for 3 yrs, and it was the most wonderful gift i could give my child. People around us always comment on the unique clossness between me and my daughter (now age 5). I see this as a result of breastfeeding. I was a single parent with no family around me so i think this gave me great freedom with breastfeeding. however i think a mother trying to breastfeed within an extended family faces complex issues.

Comment:The long-term benefit of breastfeeding for your child outweigh any temporary discomfort a mother may experience. Breastfeeding nurtures a bond between mother and child that is unbreakable. My doctor told me that breastmilk is linked to the prevention of diabetes (and may other diseases!). Breastmilk assists in the development of your child's immune system in a way that formula cannot. Breastmilk is a gift from Allah to your child - do not deprive your child of this precious gift!

Comment:The sister, may Allah reward her, did a nice job of explaining the emotional/spiritual aspect of breastfeeding, but totally neglected the technical aspects. The Number One rule of breastfeeding is supply and demand- the more you nurse, the more milk your breasts produce- in sha Allah. Feeding the baby supplimentary bottles and/or use of a pacifier will certainly affect the milk supply as will birth control pills. Confidence in Allah's wisdom for breastfeeding is vital and good nutrition (which can include herbal remedies) is important.
