There are many inspiring breastfeeding quotes that can be found to inspire and encourage a breastfeeding mother.
I grabbed some of my favorites and added them to this post. I like to read these to remind myself why I do what I do sometimes.
Let me know do you have a favorite breastfeeding quote?
“It is the lucky child who still breastfeeds past two years old.”
Former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. C. Everett Koop
“While breastfeeding may not seem the right choice for every parent, it is the best choice for every baby.”
“My opinion is that anybody offended by breastfeeding is staring too hard.”
“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.” Grantly Dick-Read
“A baby nursing at a mother’s breast… is an undeniable affirmation of our rootedness in nature.”
“If a multinational company developed a product that was a nutritionally balanced and delicious food, a wonder drug that both prevented and treated disease, cost almost nothing to produce and could be delivered in quantities controlled by the consumers’ needs, the very announcement of their find would send their shares rocketing to the top of the stock market. The scientists who developed the product would win prizes and the wealth and influence of everyone involved would increase dramatically. Women have been producing such a miraculous substance, breastmilk, since the beginning of human existence.”
“Breastmilk is love turned into food it takes someone special to share that love.”
Human Milk 4 Human Babies
“Breastfeeding is a mother’s gift to herself, her baby and the earth.”
Pamela K. Wiggins
“People need to understand that when they’re deciding between breastmilk and formula, they’re not deciding between Coke and Pepsi…. They’re choosing between a live, pure substance and a dead substance made with the cheapest oils available.”
