A nurse from Mississippi sent me an email today that captured the essence of my teaching so well that I want to share it.

She said,“You have given me so much to think about regarding breastfeeding – you make it sound like “common sense!”

She went on to tell me what she understood after taking a class with me:


When we get hungry, we eat

When we get thirsty, we drink

Sometimes we eat a little & sometimes we eat a lot

Sometimes we take a few sips & sometimes we drink a lot

Standing to breast feed

How really important the first 2 weeks are for mom & baby.”


All humans eat and drink in the same way, responding to their feelings and needs.  YAY!
