You'll likely have conversations with your midwife about your preferences for feeding your baby . Most likely, your midwife will talk with you about breastfeeding and the benefits it has for you and your baby. However, if you go home and start searching online, you might get lost in the breastfeeding myths that could overwhelm or override what your midwife may have said.

While every mother should have the right to choose how her baby is fed, mothers who want to breastfeed but feel discouraged by these myths need to realize that they often lack any basis in reality. We'll be discussing the most common myths about breastfeeding and their truths.

Myth 1: Milk Quality Does Not Change with Your Diet Quality

A high-quality diet is the best for breastfeeding. It provides mom with the nutrients and energy she needs to manage extra milk production. However, breastmilk, which is a natural byproduct human milk production, has vital nutrients and other health benefits. This applies regardless of whether you had a takeout last week.

Myth 2: You have to drink milk in order to make milk

Many mothers believe milk consumption is a prerequisite for milk production. This fact causes concern among lactose-intolerant moms, particularly those who are concerned about whether their children are getting enough calcium. It is possible to correct lactose intolerance by increasing milk consumption if necessary, but it is not impossible to eat more calcium-rich foods like spinach and broccoli if you are in this situation.

Myth 3: Mums Should Avoid Certain Foods

Family members may advise you to avoid nuts, spices, and grapes while breastfeeding. Studies have shown that breastmilk can be used to help babies avoid allergic reactions. This is especially true when only 1% of breastfed babies are affected by allergies. Mothers should not cut out foods if they experience symptoms like a rash, unusual bowel movements or a reaction to breast milk.

It is not easy to breastfeed. The myths about breastfeeding make it even more difficult. You can do yourself and your baby a favor by dispelling those myths early and focusing on a quality experience that you both can enjoy for as long as it lasts.
