Ask any new mom - breastfeeding is not such a simple business after all. Suddenly you have to think in four-hour chunks of time – and that through the night as well.

Not only does breastfeeding hold implications for your routine; a lot of other things can bubble to the surface.

Issues surrounding breastfeeding are hot topics for discussion in Health24’s forums:

  • This forum user wonders if inadequate feeding makes her less of a mom.
  • Breastfeeding can have an impact on everything from self-esteem to what the new mom has for dinner.
  • Another forum user wonders whether she’s taking breastfeeding a little too far.
  • Here’s more on a surprising angle: breastfeeding as a fetish?

Confused about what to do? Here’s the no-nonsense guide to what’s true and what is not.
