Breastfeeding quotes by Rebecca Romijn
#1. Breastfeeding is the very best diet I've been on. #Quote by Rebecca Romijn
Breastfeeding quotes by Denise Van Outen
#2. About four or five weeks after it was publicly announced I was no longer breastfeeding, I got a letter from the NHS saying they were being supportive of me, but basically, they were very disappointed I'd stopped. #Quote by Denise Van Outen
Breastfeeding quotes by Imelda May
#3. When I tell people that I lost my baby weight through breastfeeding, they think I'm exaggerating. But it was brilliant for that. It is great for bonding with your baby. It is hard when no one else can feed her, but it was worth it for me. I loved it. #Quote by Imelda May
Breastfeeding quotes by David Allen
#4. My opinion is that anybody offended by breastfeeding is staring too hard #Quote by David Allen
Breastfeeding quotes by Jack Newman
#5. Women should know the truth. They can take it; they are adults, not children. If a mother opts for formula rather than breastfeeding, there is good evidence that her baby will score lower on IQ tests and will have a higher risk of many illnesses including some cancers, diabetes, respiratory illnesses, diarrhea and ear infections. She should know that her own risk of breast, ovarian and uterine cancer will be higher, as well as her daughter's risk of breast cancer. The mother increases her own risk of diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and becoming overweight by "choosing" formula feeding. There is accumulating evidence that the risk of mental illness (alcoholism, ADHD, schizophrenia) is increased by not breastfeeding. A recent study suggested that even behaviour problems in adolescents are more likely if the child was formula fed. The longer the child is breastfed, the lower the risk both for the child and the mother. #Quote by Jack Newman
Breastfeeding quotes by John Hodgman
#6. I would definitely make eggs for the rest of my life if I could. #Quote by John Hodgman
Breastfeeding quotes by Emer O'Toole
#7. Even within our culture, there are times when breasts stop being read as bouncy sex balls: when women are breastfeeding, there's pretty wide acceptance of the fact that shouting 'phwoar' is bad form. #Quote by Emer O'Toole
Breastfeeding quotes by Cassi Clark
#8. I think I would scream too if someone violently jammed a big ass breast in my mouth. #Quote by Cassi Clark
Breastfeeding quotes by Barbara Ehrenreich
#9. I dust a whole shelf of books on pregnancy, breastfeeding, the first six months, the first year, the first two years - and I wonder what the child care-deprived Maddy makes of all this. Maybe there's been some secret division of the world's women into breeders and drones, and those at the maid level are no longer supposed to be reproducing at all. Maybe this is why our office manager, Tammy, who was once a maid herself, wears inch-long fake nails and tarty little outfits - to show she's advanced to the breeder caste and can't be sent out to clean anymore. #Quote by Barbara Ehrenreich
Breastfeeding quotes by Kathryn Stockett
#10. Bosoms," she announces, with a hand to her own, "are for bedrooms and breastfeeding. Not for occasions with dignity."
"Well, what do you want her to do, Eleanor? Leave them at home? #Quote by Kathryn Stockett
Breastfeeding quotes by Brenda Shaughnessy
#11. I've been melted into something
too easy to spill. I make more
and more of myself in order
to make more and more of the baby.
He takes it, this making. And somehow
he's made more of me, too. #Quote by Brenda Shaughnessy
Breastfeeding quotes by Anne M. Mulcahy
#12. Something as simple as better breastfeeding could save a million children a year. #Quote by Anne M. Mulcahy
Breastfeeding quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
#13. Time-traveling again?" said Montana. It was artificial evening in the dome. She was breastfeeding their child. "Hmm?" said Billy. "You've been time-traveling again. I can always tell. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

Breastfeeding quotes by Frank A. Oski
#15. Imagine that the world had created a new 'dream product' to feed and immunize everyone born on earth. Imagine also that it was available everywhere, required no storage or delivery, and helped mothers plan their families and reduce the risk of cancer. Then imagine that the world refused to use it. #Quote by Frank A. Oski
Breastfeeding quotes by Simko Pharm. D., Lauren
#16. What is important is any amount of breast milk that can be given to the baby is better than none, and breastfeeding is one of the many challenges along the way of being a great mother. #Quote by Simko Pharm. D., Lauren

#17. Every luxury was lavished on you - atheism, breastfeeding, circumcision. #Quote by Joe Orton

Breastfeeding quotes by Daphne Oz
#20.

I love that I am able to play a role in giving that joy and support to the moms we will be helping. #Quote by Daphne Oz
Breastfeeding quotes by Marni Jackson
#21. Breastfeeding is an unsentimental metaphor for how love works, in a way. You don't decide how much and how deeply to love - you respond to the beloved, and give with joy exactly as much as they want. #Quote by Marni Jackson
Breastfeeding quotes by Kelly Rutherford
#22. It's an amazing bond with your child. Some cultures do it up to five years, normally. I thought, 'Well, I'll just do it as long as it feels right for my son.' #Quote by Kelly Rutherford
Breastfeeding quotes by Victoria Beckham
#23. I spent the whole summer with my boobs out, breastfeeding. I loved it. It was heaven. #Quote by Victoria Beckham
Breastfeeding quotes by Katha Pollitt
#24. We think we value mothers in America, but we don't. We may revere motherhood, the hazy abstraction, the cream-of-wheat-with-a-halo ideal, but a mother is just a kind of woman, after all, and women are trouble and not so valuable. Low-income mothers drag down the country - why'd they have kids if they couldn't support them? Middle-class mothers are boring frumps. Elite ones are obsessed sanctimommies: Don't they know how annoying they are, with their yoga, their catfights over diapers and breastfeeding, their designer strollers that take up half the sidewalk so that people with important places to go have to take several extra steps? #Quote by Katha Pollitt
Breastfeeding quotes by Vera Farmiga
#25. Esquire's all about mommy issues now. Breastfeeding, vaccinations, playdate etiquette. #Quote by Vera Farmiga
Breastfeeding quotes by Ina May Gaskin
#26. In the Netherlands, the government health plan provides for a specially trained nurse/lactation expert to help each new baby's parents in their home for a full ten days following each birth (with a small co-payment). Hired for three, five, or eight hours according to individual families' needs, this maternity nurse serves the new parents breakfast in bed, feeds any older children their breakfast, walks the dog, helps the new mother with breastfeeding if necessary, cleans the house, and notifies the midwife if the mother or baby should need medical attention for any reason. The Dutch consider the care provided each family by the maternity nurse to be an investment in good health, which benefits the entire society because it so effectively reduces the number of illnesses mothers and babies experience during the first year of the baby's life and thus saves money #Quote by Ina May Gaskin
Breastfeeding quotes by Adrienne Carmack
#27. Breastfeeding does not have to be hard. Breastfeeding is natural. With rare exceptions, it becomes hard only because of all the interference caused by the medicalization of birth and unsupportive culture. Animals breastfeed instinctively with no need for supplementation, classes, or support. We as humans also have these instincts. We have become so disconnected. Breastfeeding my children has been one of my greatest joys in life, and I am filled with sorrow when I imagine how many mothers and infants haven't been able to experience this because of misinformation. #Quote by Adrienne Carmack
Breastfeeding quotes by Alice Callahan
#28. We do science because we want to understand the truth. It is a constant, ongoing pursuit to understand our own biology so that we can make smart choices at an individual and policy level. If the science of breastfeeding is used first and foremost as a tool for breastfeeding promotion, we compromise public trust in science. Biased information about breastfeeding also sets up infant feeding as a debate, which sometimes escalates to mommy war status, and it doesn't need to be either of these. #Quote by Alice Callahan
Breastfeeding quotes by Kathryn Michaels
#29. The silence stretched out between us as I stared at him, the tears blurring my vision as I waited for him to save me from this torment. Surely he could find a way. #Quote by Kathryn Michaels
Breastfeeding quotes by Titilayo Medunoye
#30. Breast milk is like the well that never stops giving. #Quote by Titilayo Medunoye
Breastfeeding quotes by Jessica Bates
#31. I try to feel my own edges in the
low light. I send my mind to the
outer edges of me - where do I end?
I send myself to my innermost edges,
and I see that in both directions
I am infinite. #Quote by Jessica Bates
Breastfeeding quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#32. What a singular fact for an angel visitant to this earth to carry back in his note-book, that men were forbidden to expose their bodies under the severest penalties! #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Breastfeeding quotes by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon
#33. It is high time to declare an end to the breastfeeding dictatorship that is drowning women in guilt and worry just when they most need support: after the birth of a child. #Quote by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon
Breastfeeding quotes by Stephen Gaskin
#34. Children don't just get milk from breastfeeding, they get our energy too. #Quote by Stephen Gaskin
Breastfeeding quotes by Cassi Clark
#35. Though breastfeeding is supposed to the most natural thing ever, it seems like a rich-people sport for all the stuff we buy to help. #Quote by Cassi Clark
Breastfeeding quotes by Melanie Brown
#36. Breastfeeding is amazing; you can actually feel your stomach shrink with every feed. #Quote by Melanie Brown
Breastfeeding quotes by Sarah Manguso
#37. In my experience nursing is waiting. The mother becomes the background against which the baby lives, becomes time. I used to exist against the continuity of time. Then I became the baby's continuity, a background of ongoing time for him to live against. I was the warmth and milk that was always there for him, the agent of comfort that was always there for him.

My body, my life, became the landscape of my son's life. I am no longer merely a thing living in the world; I am a world. #Quote by Sarah Manguso
Breastfeeding quotes by Cassi Clark
#38. Go hug a nursing mom -- but not too hard. Her boobs may hurt. #Quote by Cassi Clark
Breastfeeding quotes by Katherine Mansfield
#39. How idiotic civilization is! Why be given a body if you have to keep it shut up in a case like a rare, rare fiddle? #Quote by Katherine Mansfield
Breastfeeding quotes by Frank A. Oski
#40. $13 to $20 billion a year could be saved in health care costs by demedicalizing childbirth, developing midwifery, and encouraging breastfeeding. #Quote by Frank A. Oski
Breastfeeding quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#41. MAMMALIA, n.pl. A family of vertebrate animals whose females in a state of nature suckle their young, but when civilized and enlightened put them out to nurse, or use the bottle. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Breastfeeding quotes by Tichina Arnold
#42. An innocent little human being was solely dependent on me! I took all the CPR and breastfeeding classes and learned quite a bit. #Quote by Tichina Arnold
Breastfeeding quotes by Cassi Clark
#43. I can absolutely assure you that birth is nothing like holding an ice cube in your hand for a minute and breathing through the "pain. #Quote by Cassi Clark
Breastfeeding quotes by Monica Bellucci
#44. Listen, I had two kids - one when I was 40, one when I was 45. I breastfed for one year, which means I was breastfeeding four years ago. I'm going to move from giving birth to menopause without really realising. #Quote by Monica Bellucci
Breastfeeding quotes by Ashley Montagu
#45. The benefits to the mother of immediate breastfeeding are innumerable, not the least of which after the weariness of labor and birth is the emotional gratification, the feeling of strength, the composure, and the sense of fulfillment that comes with the handling and suckling of the baby. #Quote by Ashley Montagu
Breastfeeding quotes by Margaret Visser
#46. Bread is for us a kind of successor to the motherly breast, and it has been over the centuries responsible for billions of sighs of satisfaction. #Quote by Margaret Visser
Breastfeeding quotes by Deborah Cox
#47. I am big believer in breastfeeding. My oldest was breastfed for 9 months, my second for 6 months and I will try to nurse Kayla for 6 months. At the end of the day, it's a big sacrifice but you have healthier kids. #Quote by Deborah Cox
Breastfeeding quotes by Christine Northrup
#48. When we trust the makers of baby formula more than we do our own ability to nourish our babies, we lose a chance to claim an aspect of our power as women. Thinking that baby formula is as good as breast milk is believing that thirty years of technology is superior to three million years of nature's evolution. Countless women have regained trust in their bodies through nursing their children, even if they weren't sure at first that they could do it. It is an act of female power, and I think of it as feminism in its purest form. #Quote by Christine Northrup
Breastfeeding quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#49. When you hold a child to your breast to nurse, the curve of the little head echoes exactly the curve of the breast it suckles, as though this new person truly mirrors the flesh from which it sprang. #Quote by Diana Gabaldon
Breastfeeding quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#50. Nursing does not diminish the beauty of a woman's breasts; it enhances their charm by making them look lived in and happy. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Breastfeeding quotes by Jessica Shortall
#51. If breastfeeding is causing you terrible anxiety, ruining your performance at work, hurting your relationship with your kids or your spouse - all of these are valid factors. You are more than the milk you make, and you are in charge of your body. #Quote by Jessica Shortall
Breastfeeding quotes by Bruce Bawer
#52. Unsurprisingly, given the eagerness of professors and students of identity studies to claim as many labels for themselves as possible, some individuals have sought to expand the definition of disability to include ... well, themselves. At the "Wrong/ed Bodies" session at the Cultural Studies conference, Angela Lea Nemecek complained that when she breastfed in her office at the University of Virginia, she was made to feel as if she had a disability. In short, her breastfeeding was "constructed in the workplace" as a disability. Therefore, she reasoned, breastfeeding is a disability and should be protected under the Americans with Disability Act. #Quote by Bruce Bawer
Breastfeeding quotes by Cassi Clark
#53. Successful breastfeeding take courage, resilience, patience, and support and it always has. If your partner or support group hasn't piled on the accolades for your heroism, then let them know you will expect oohs and has when you make it through the first two to three months (no matter how you got there) and your baby is happy and healthy -- because you are awesome! #Quote by Cassi Clark
Breastfeeding quotes by Tim Kreider
#54. Quite a lot of what passes itself off as dialogue about our society consists of people trying to justify their own choices (pursuing a creative career instead of making money; breastfeeding over formula; not having children in an overpopulated world) as the only right or natural ones by denouncing others' as selfish and wrong. So it's easy to overlook that it all arises out of insecurity. #Quote by Tim Kreider
Breastfeeding quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#55. Breastfeeding is a beautiful thing, one of the most beautiful things that exist in nature. Think about how a woman can literally feed her baby with her body! In my eyes, this is a certain form of beauty, of divinity! To know that my body can not only form and bring another human being into the world, but that I can actually feed babies with my own milk from my own breasts - that puts me in a state of awe each time I think about it. It is an honour to be a woman. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Breastfeeding quotes by Maureen Minchin
#56. Breastfeeding is the natural human way of providing exactly that continuous stimulation to the child's developing microbiome and immune system. Partial breastfeeding continued through the first year would ensure a greater likelihood of tolerance, ending the pointless but confusing wrangle over four versus six months as the better age for introduction to other foods. Strong medical advocacy in support of the WHO goal might just be enough to generate the societal re-structuring that would be needed for such breastfeeding to become possible for more than advantaged minorities. #Quote by Maureen Minchin
Breastfeeding quotes by Cassi Clark
#57. If nursing were easy, there wouldn't be so many helpful products. #Quote by Cassi Clark
Breastfeeding quotes by Patricia Heaton
#58. I had four C-sections and my stomach looked like the map of the world. My breasts were hanging down to here from breastfeeding those babies, and my nipples were like platters. I wanted to fit into the gowns that I finally got to wear. #Quote by Patricia Heaton
Breastfeeding quotes by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon
#59. No one argues with the many benefits of breastfeeding for those women who choose it. #Quote by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon
Breastfeeding quotes by Friedrich Schiller
#60. Joy all creatures drink At nature's bosoms ... #Quote by Friedrich Schiller
Breastfeeding quotes by Paula Patton
#61. Once I finished breastfeeding, my mom's like, 'Don't take that bra off ever!' Mom, thank you. I wore a one-size-too-small bra for like, two years. It helps ... ! They don't fall, you teach them, you teach them to come back! #Quote by Paula Patton
Breastfeeding quotes by Giulia Enders
#62. Breast milk is so beneficial that a more or less well-nourished mother need not do any more than suckle her baby to ensure it is receiving a healthy diet. When it comes to the nutrients it contains, breast milk provides everything that dietary scientists believe children need in order to thrive - it is the best dietary supplement ever. It contains everything, knows everything, and can do everything necessary for a child's well-being. And, as if that weren't enough, it has the added advantage of passing on a bit of Mom's immune system to her offspring. #Quote by Giulia Enders
Breastfeeding quotes by Kourtney Kardashian
#63. I know that, for me, I need to try to cover myself while breastfeeding so that no one snaps a picture. If this wasn't the case, I probably wouldn't mind as much because my son is my biggest concern. My attitude is, if someone sees a little somethin' somethin', don't look if you don't like it. #Quote by Kourtney Kardashian
Breastfeeding quotes by Gisele Bundchen
#64. My intention in making a comment about the importance of breastfeeding has nothing to do with the law. It comes from my passion and beliefs about children. #Quote by Gisele Bundchen
Breastfeeding quotes by Nadia Bolz-Weber
#65. Holiness is the union we experience with one another and with God. Holiness is when more than one become one, when what is fractured is made whole. Singing in harmony. Breastfeeding a baby. Collective bargaining. Dancing. Admitting our pain to someone, and hearing them say, "Me too." Holiness happens when we are integrated as physical, spiritual, sexual, emotional, and political beings. Holiness is the song that has always been sung, perhaps even the sound that was first spoken when God said, "Let there be light. #Quote by Nadia Bolz-Weber
Breastfeeding quotes by Vera Farmiga
#66. When you're breastfeeding a child, you don't have the same retention as you do when you're not. #Quote by Vera Farmiga
Breastfeeding quotes by Bijou Hunter
#67. POPPY (on her mother not breastfeeding her during infancy): If you had breastfed me, it might have increased my IQ, and I'd have a lot of pressure to succeed. My average IQ means I can simply coast through life, so thank you. #Quote by Bijou Hunter
Breastfeeding quotes by David Alan Basche
#68. I hate to admit this, but before we had a baby I was kind of weirded out by breastfeeding. It looked strange, and I was always like, 'Look away! Ignore it, ignore the boobs in the room, move along, nothing to see here!' #Quote by David Alan Basche
Breastfeeding quotes by Iris Marion Young
#69. Breasts are a scandal because they shatter the border between motherhood and sexuality. #Quote by Iris Marion Young
Breastfeeding quotes by Jill Johnston
#70. It costs a lot of money to go into cafes to breastfeed when out in public. Not everyone has the money to do that. Yet, at the same time, it is often people with the least money and accompanying health inequalities that are most likely to benefit from breastfeeding #Quote by Jill Johnston
Breastfeeding quotes by Rachel Lehmann-Haupt
#71. Some women just want the experience of being pregnant, giving birth, and breastfeeding. For many women, these are vital bonding experiences." (p. 274: in her own sweet time) #Quote by Rachel Lehmann-Haupt
Breastfeeding quotes by Carol Shields
#72. A woman's life isn't worth a plateful of cabbage if she hasn't felt life stir under her heart. Taking a little one to nurse, watching him grow to manhood, that's what love is. #Quote by Carol Shields
Breastfeeding quotes by Sue Monk Kidd
#73. I often went to Catholic mass or Eucharist at the Episcopal church, nourished by the symbol and power of this profound feeding ritual. It never occurred to me how odd it was that women, who have presided over the domain of food and feeding for thousands of years, were historically and routinely barred from presiding over it in a spiritual context. And when the priest held out the host and said, "This is my body, given for you," not once did I recognize that it is women in the act of breastfeeding who most truly embody those words and who are also most excluded from ritually saying them. #Quote by Sue Monk Kidd
Breastfeeding quotes by La Leche League International
#74. Breastfeeding doesn't give you brownie points. It's simply the normal way to raise a baby. #Quote by La Leche League International
Breastfeeding quotes by Hilary Jacobson
#75. Find Hilary Jacobson on Facebook at her Mother Food Page and her group Healing Breastfeeding Grief. #Quote by Hilary Jacobson
Breastfeeding quotes by Jade Jagger
#76. My mother didn't find motherhood easy. I've heard her saying that. She didn't breastfeed me. I woke up when I was breastfeeding my own child thinking, 'How can a woman feel an attachment to a child without breast-feeding?' #Quote by Jade Jagger
Breastfeeding quotes by Kourtney Kardashian
#77. When you're breastfeeding, you don't get juicy down there. The juice isn't loose. #Quote by Kourtney Kardashian
Breastfeeding quotes by Gunter Grass
#78. There must be reasons why we men are so hipped on breasts as if we'd all been weaned too soon. #Quote by Gunter Grass
Breastfeeding quotes by Ina May Gaskin
#79. Mother's milk is soul food for babies. The babies of the world need a lot more soul food. #Quote by Ina May Gaskin
