Benefits Of Breastfeeding

How Can I Respond to My Pediatrician Who is Not Supportive of Breastfeeding?

Welcome to our first edition of Help A Breastfeeding Mama Out!  Every Thursday, we will answer a question from one of our dear readers.  Do YOU have a burning question you would like answered on our blog Please email them to and we add it to our list!


Any advice for responding to doctors when they are unsupportive of breastfeeding past the first few months or uneducated about it (such as believing it causes cavities, etc.)?  Thank you in advance!




Dear Theresa,

My first response would be, "Can I have my records, please?"
