Breastfeeding will prevent pregnancy: Breastfeeding can prevent pregnancy, but it should not be considered a birth control method. Plenty of mamas who try using breastfeeding as birth control end up with two babies under the age of two. Breastfeed babies don't get enough to eat: I think that some mamas think this because when you're breastfeeding, it can feel like that baby is permanently attached to your boobs. If your baby is always eating, maybe he's not getting enough food? This is a myth though. Most newborns eat every two to three hours during their first few weeks. It just seems like your baby is always eating because you're getting used to breastfeeding - and so is your baby. Later, he'll eat faster, and less often. You can make more milk if you take a break from breastfeeding: Nope - breastfeeding is a big time supply and demand deal. The more your baby eats, the more milk you'll make. If you miss one or two feedings, it'll feel like you made more milk, but that's only because you haven't fed your baby. If you miss too many feedings (or pumping sessions), your milk supply will go down.
