The Benefits Of Breastfeeding For Infants And Mothers

Thank you for discussing this important topic. I'd like to hear a discussion on the difference between professional medical opinions (pro-breastfeeding) and the general public's perception of breastfeeding (in some cases anti-breastfeeding). I am a breastfeeding mother, my infant is just two months old, and have experienced negative messages from the public. I was making a reservation at a local restaurant and when I told them I would be bringing my infant, the owner told me they didn't want women breastfeeding in their restaurant. I have also had many people who didn't breastfeed ask me: "What's so difficult about it? Why do you need to go to support groups, etc?" I feel there is a real divide between the Medical community's support and the general public's lack of understanding and support.
