Knowing the anatomy and physiology of how breastfeeding works, including lactation, can give mothers a better understanding of breastfeeding. MommyzLove.com published a complete guide on the biology of breastfeeding to help educate mothers, especially those with breastfeeding problems.
— Mommyz Love, a breastfeeding support blog, recently published an educational guide on how breastfeeding works. In this article, Mommyz Love illustrated the different biological processes taking place during breastfeeding, including breast changes, hormonal shifts, and the mechanism of lactation from adolescence to postpartum.
The article emphasized the workings of both the mother’s body and her will to breastfeed. Milk production is primarily driven by hormones in the beginning, but after delivering the baby, it will be the mother’s responsibility to maintain milk supply. Breastfeeding and pumping out breast milk is important to maintain adequate breast milk for your baby.

Breastfeeding is a natural biological process of nourishing an infant, but that doesn’t mean it comes easy for every woman. According to the article, many women encounter a variety of breastfeeding issues due to lack of knowledge and false expectations. The breastfeeding guide aims to give women a deeper understanding of their breast anatomy in order to help address their breastfeeding issues accordingly.
Stephanie Murillo, the co-founder of Mommyz Love, shared her realizations about breastfeeding. “Before I was a mom I just thought that once you have a baby your boobs would just automatically be filled with milk and that was that. To me, it was just a natural process. When you actually start to breastfeed yourself, you realize how amazing and incredible it is that every breast milk is tailor-made for each baby. In fact, even the color and texture changes from baby to baby.”
Breastfeeding has been the advocacy of many health organizations like the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Since it’s the optimum form of infant nutrition, experts recommend exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months, and complementary feeding while breastfeeding for at least one year.
