4. If a woman large / small breast, it is “non-dairy”.
5. Imagine how easy it will be to establish lactation and everything will be just perfect and without problems.
6. When in the first days the baby cries for a long time wants to be at the breast, give him a pacifier, and then buy the mix because the child is hungry.
7. If a woman has flat nipples, it is necessary to put an end to breastfeeding.
