All I Need to Know About Life I Learned By Breastfeeding

by Mary Cassatt

Parenting is a 24 hour job.

Good things come in all sizes.

Our choices have consequences.

Some people do have to work harder than others to succeed.

Time and Patience improve most situations.

Feeling “let down” can be the best feeling in the world.

To do something well, you must do it often.

Man-made schedules do not fit many circumstances.

Some “experts” are not.

The best things in life really are free.

If you follow your heart, you’ll be a better parent.

Children always, eventually, move on to a new phase.

The longer I breastfed, the more lessons I learned.

When you know that you are really doing the right thing, it does not matter what other people think.
