Amber Lundy ENG 101 Mrs. Vestal 23 November 2015 Breastfeeding Becoming a mother is a time of excitement, preparation, anxiety, and uncertainty.

Breast milk is one of the best milk mothers give to their babies after childbirth to nourish the body and protect against infections from the environment and other communicable diseases. Infants cannot fight off diseases because their body has not built its own antibodies and strong immune system. They depend on breast milk to get all the nutrients and develop their immune system. A Mother passes antibodies to baby through breast milk. Studies have shown, breastfed newborns has the immunity to fight off infection and less likely to get sick than babies not breastfeed.

Breastfeeding in Public. Could it be a social norm or are we just too shy?
In the last few years, mothers breastfeeding in public areas has been a controversial issue. Breastfeeding mothers have received the stigma of society for showing their breasts while nursing. For some people, the breast is seen as something sexual, repugnant, and even offensive. Breastfeeding mothers should not be made to feel guilty, disgust or ashamed for nursing in public. Women should be allowed to breastfeed in public because it is the healthiest option for the infant, the most economical way to feed, and it is a natural process.

In addition, refraining from breastfeeding has been linked to lower intelligence in the infant (Rollins et al., 2016).

Breastfeeding is a healthy, natural ability of every woman, and should therefore be socially acceptable and supported by everyone. For some reason this is not the case in our society, in fact breastfeeding continues to be a controversial issue that must be addressed by women’s rights activist groups. Breastfeeding is a feminist issue because the natural act has been medicalized and devalued by major companies because of their interests in profits in bottle feeding.

(Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2014). This decrease in continuation of breastfeeding may be primarily due to ineffective communication, poor education, and inadequate support. According to Williams, Young, Kearney, and Keogh (2013), “An important aspect of everyday nursing care in paediatric acute care facilities is the support and care of breastfeeding families” (p. 14). Nurses’ who implement the promotion of breastfeeding may pose many benefits for the well-bring of their clients such as; maternal and child bonding and health protection, child growth and development, and family and society protection (Bomer-Norton, 2014, p.88). Therefore, breastfeeding promotion is essential and relevant to pediatric nursing care. This paper will explore the significance of breastfeeding with the pediatric population, analyze nursing implications for breastfeeding promotion, and the involvement of Bevis nursing tools to support the strategies in nursing practice.
Bringing a newborn baby into the world is a miracle from God. However, this miracle brings with it numerous decisions. For example, one choice is what method to use to feed the baby. An excellent nutritional start is key to a baby’s life long health. With that being said, many mothers struggle making the decision whether to breast-feed or formula feed. Both choices offer countless pros and cons. Ultimately, it is a personal assessment mothers must undertake. Two factors to consider when making the decision on whether to breast-feed or formula feed are nutritional benefits and convenience.
