Libro Dar de mamar



Why do we need a breastfeeding manual? Isn't it something natural that every woman can breastfeed? In our culture, when a woman is pregnant, she usually focuses her attention, her fears, and her fantasies on childbirth. We fear pain, we worry that everything will turn out well. However, breastfeeding seems to be something simpler, where no tools or professional experts are needed and it only involves a baby drinking milk from its mother's breast... how complicated can it be? 

In Uruguay, in 2011, only 36% of babies were exclusively breastfed during the first six months of life. This figure, among other conclusions, shows us that breastfeeding can have various obstacles. 

We have made progress in extending maternity leave and the emergence of rooms prepared so that women can breastfeed during working hours, in public and private organizations. But, beyond the achievements, very often women feel vulnerable and do not have the necessary tools to practice it.
