The World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding for six months (baby will receive breast milk only without any additional food or drink including water). Start baby foods from six months onwards while continuing breastfeeding for up to two years and beyond.

Virtually all mothers can breastfeed, provided they have accurate information, and the support of their family, the health care system and society at large.”
I have been having Bartholin cysts for many years. I went for a minor surgery before, but was informed that it would keep coming back from time to time.
