Before concieving babies, I wrote a vaseeyat for them. I put it up in their baby book. What Luqman Alayhe Salam adviced his son. Do not associate anyone with Allah, be grateful & mindful that your mom nursed you for whole 2 years. All I wish for my children is that beneficial education brings out good human beings!
Breastfeeding is so much encouraged in the Quran. One finds Warning signs even on the formula milk cartons that encourage nursing. Mother's milk changes its ingredients & consistency depending upon the needs of her baby. Is the baby thirsty? to boosts his immunity & the best part is, it is warm!
It is a lovely connection between mother and baby. Allah mentions in the Quran "Mothers shall breastfeed their children for two whole years, for those who wish to complete the term" (2:233). Nursing forces mothers to relax, latch on, cuddle and Co-sleep. I am too lazy to sterilize bottles. I hate waiting for bottle warmers to blink. I would rather nurse my crying babies. I have nursed my babies everywhere with a nursing-sling on. I would wear them if relatives are coming over, on a fancy café catch up with my new mum friends.
May Allah make it easier for our mothers in nurse their children Ameen
