If you're a new mom, or soon to be, you might have already thought about how you might, or might not, breastfeed your baby.

According to the World Health Organization:

Breastfeeding is one of the most effective ways to ensure child health and survival… Breastmilk is the ideal food for infants. It is safe, clean and contains antibodies which help protect against many common childhood illnesses. Breastmilk provides all the energy and nutrients that the infant needs for the first months of life, and it continues to provide up to half or more of a child’s nutritional needs during the second half of the first year, and up to one third during the second year of life.

Sounds great right? You picture yourself with your baby in a big rocking chair on the front porch breastfeeding. It’s a warm sunny day and there's a nice breeze. The birds are chirping, and you can smell the spring flowers as they come into bloom…
