Question 1

If you have large breasts you cannot breastfeed because you will smother your baby.

True
False
With correct positioning, you will not smother your baby- no matter how big you are!

Question 2

The size of your breasts plays a large part in how much milk you produce.

True
False

Question 3

Breastfed babies need to feed more frequently than formula fed babies.

True
False
Because breastmilk is digested so easily breastfed babies do need to eat more often than formula fed babies. This helps to maintain a healthy milk supply and also has many other benefits! Babies are designed to sleep for short periods of time and to eat frequently.

Question 4

If you are taking any medication you cannot breastfeed.

True
False
Discuss any medication with your doctor. There are VERY FEW medications which are not compatible with breastfeeding.

Question 5

The international average age of weaning is twelve months.

True
False
The world average for weaning is over four years! The WHO and UNICEF recommend breastfeeding for ATLEAST 2 years and the AAP recommends breastfeeding for ATLEAST 1 year.

Question 6

It is important to give a breastfed baby formula after 6 months because it has higher iron content than breastmilk.

True
False
Formula does have a higher iron content than breastmilk but it is not as easily absorbed. A baby can get much more iron from breastmilk without the added difficulty of constipation that formula can cause.
