Natural Family Planning and Breastfeeding

In the last 6 blogs, I reviewed 37 published research papers on the benefits of breastfeeding for the year 2016 alone.  That’s 3 a month.

The evidence is overwhelming on the benefits gained when a mother breastfeeds her baby, especially if she exclusively breastfeeds for the first 6 months and continues until the baby is at least 1 or 2 years old.

We can ask those who have read the last six blogs:

Will babies’ lives be saved due to breastfeeding?  The answer is YES.

Will mothers’ lives be improved due to her breastfeeding?  The answer is YES.

Is formula just as good?  The answer is clearly NO.

Does formula cause some deaths for the baby? The answer is YES.

Where is this message promoted by our government?

Where is this message promoted by our Church?

Research also shows that the right kind of breastfeeding spaces babies.  This has been demonstrated by published research papers, even during the 1930s to 1970 when I began my research on breastfeeding and natural child spacing.

John and I have been publishing books and articles on this topic of birth spacing since 1969.  The message needs to be promoted as an option to all  couples engaged or recently married.  Justice demands that this choice be taught in our churches and in our mission work.  It also needs to be promoted by our government which promotes unnatural birth control and abortifacients because mothers need some spacing between births!  God through Nature provides this spacing with no abstinence and only good side effects.  So why do many NFP and other health-promoting organizations ignore this life-enhancing option?

Yes.  God does space babies through breastfeeding alone.   To learn more, please read the book below.
