During my pregnant time till delivered, I've been told that breastfeeding provides the best nutrient to our baby and its benefits cannot be found in formula milk. It seems to me that breastfeeding is a very welcoming idea in the culture and it is the best for the baby.

However, being in this little hometown of mine, I've seen almost near to zero effort been put to promote and makes young mothers to breastfeed their babies. All that I see is some organization would organize breastfeeding talks, benefits, etc but almost near to zero is done to change the public view of breastfeeding.

Now, what am I talking about? I often realize when a mother breastfeed their child in public, the eyes of the public would either gives a weird look or a stare as if saying 'What are you doing exposing your boobs in public'. Oh well, babies need to be fed, right. Instead of promoting breastfeeding among mothers or mother to be, little has been done to change the public mindset about it!
