FACT: This is not true. Breastfeeding does provide the best nutrition for baby, builds the immune system and promotes bonding, as well as many other health benefits.Make sure to place back back in the crib once feeding is finished. Some mothers have found it helpful to set a timer or alarm to help wake them after feeding if they accidently fall asleep or become sleepy.  Partners are also helpful in returning baby to the crib when feeding is done.

Breastfeeding is encouraged and can be done safely!
