Sixth Standard of Ecological Breastfeeding

Nurse Frequently Day and Night and Avoid Schedules

To be a successful breastfeeding mother you need to nurse frequently.  To space your babies naturally you need to nurse frequently day and night and avoid schedules. 

Research has shown that frequent, unrestricted nursing or short intervals between feedings are important in maintaining natural infertility. 

“I thank you for the positive effect you’ve had on my mothering skills.  I nursed my first baby for 4.5 months and then quit because of the inconvenience.  I nursed my second baby for 22 months because it was so very convenient.”
