Though it is very common to BF in India many people are not aware that it is a supply and demand. Everyone thinks that you have milk for first few months andsuply gradually goes down after that. So my mother was pleasantly surprised when I took her toa Bfeeding class here. My mom said she BFed me for a year but I was also given cow's milk because she thought she did not have enough milk. My mom said I was crying all the time(may be it was colic and they did not know) So naturally she thought she did not have enough and started supplementing with cow's milk. She said that evn though she had many aunts and other ladies around none of them were knowledgable. She is very supportive of my decision to exclusively BF.
one more thing - my cousins back in India have all had babies and they are so surprised that I worry so much about weight gain, poops, pees etc. They have all BF successfully without knowing much about it and their babies are thriving
But I would worry no matter where I am..thats just me!
