Last week I was told “There’s a time and place for everything” when it comes to breastfeeding.  It’s not the first time I’ve ever heard that, and I couldn’t agree more!  The time is whenever baby is hungry, and the place is wherever Mama is. When we breastfeed, we feed “on demand” or “on cue“.  […]
