Myth

Breastfeeding makes breasts saggy.

Changes to your breasts happen during pregnancy, as your body prepares for breastfeeding regardless of how you plan to feed.

Myth

Infant formula satisfies babies for longer than breastmilk.

Small, frequent feeds are normal; frequent breastfeeding stimulates mothers’ milk production, infant brain development, and closeness.

Myth

Some women can’t make enough milk to breastfeed, so there’s no point.

Over 98% of women make enough milk for their babies when they follow their baby’s cues.

Myth

Breastfeeding is painful.

When your baby has a lot of breast tissue in their mouth, and positioning is right, breastfeeding is usually comfortable and pain-free.
