Breastfeeding is amazing

When I first came to Ghana I was sitting in a public transport vehicle when the lady next to me suddenly popped out her breast and started feeding her baby. I was surprised, but in a good way because it was such an acceptable action, no one in the vehicle was uncomfortable.
      As a nurse in the US I once taught a patient how to pump her breast milk for her premature baby who was in the intensive care unit. I was so happy to see the milk flow that I clapped (she kind of thought I was crazy, but I found the whole process to be miraculous). God is fantastic to have created natural free, healthy nutrition for babies in the form of breast milk.
