Q.

Please assist

What may be the causes of not breastfeeding other than being HIV Positive? I am HIV positive and people keep on asking why am I not breastfeeding and I am not ready to disclose yet.

Thank you

Tell them you had a breast enlagment or breast reduction.

Some babies are not able to latch hence some mothers dont breastfeed.
Others dont produce enough milk.
