Host: If you are going to breastfeed, be wise before you select a pediatrician you would want some of that would be on your side not against you, so you should interview the pediatrician and ask the question. Would you encourage breast feeding or not? Speaker: That's correct, well, still mom say -- when even without -- moms were not even, not even talking about breastfeeding. I do the towing of that. I do it through in the hospitals sometimes and I would tell moms and ask them that have you selected a pediatrician for your baby and those of you who are breastfeeding you talk to your doctor, let him or her know that you are planning to breastfeed. How does he feel about it, how supportive would he be? So you have an idea of who are dealing with and how much support you will be getting from them. Host: Of course, we say support you will hope that your husband, your family and everybody around you would give you the support, is that true? Speaker: The support comes from everyone. Host: And don't refuse anybody that no, it will give you some help to take care of the kid. Speaker: That's it and another thing that you want to be careful with advice that you get from some of your support because everybody is an authority on because they go by their experience and they may want to shower that on you, but you have to really be selective about the things you -- the advice that you get and really weight the pros and cons of it.
