Why knowledge is power when it comes to breastfeeding

I was out to lunch with my mom recently and noticed two parents with a stroller sitting next to us. A quick glance at what I assumed was a newborn, was confirmed by the exhausted yet joyful haze that was present in the parents’ eyes, and my inability to control asking the baby’s age – 8 days old! I praised their venture out and congratulated them on their first baby.
