Breastfeeding quote: will warm you up!

Today’s breastfeeding quote is from Grantly Dick-Read (1890-1959), who is considered to be the father of natural childbirth. He encouraged mothers to give birth with as little medical intervention as possible, educating parents about the benefits of giving birth naturally. Whether a woman gives birth by c-section or not (let’s acknowledge that about a third of American women now give birth by c-section) breastfeeding remains the answer to the three baby’s demands stated below by Grantly Dick-Read. Ain’t that grand?

A newborn baby has only three demands.  They are warmth in the arms of its mother, food from her breasts, and security in the knowledge of her presence.  Breastfeeding satisfies all three.
