Breast Feeding

Breast Feeding

Breast feeding is a great time of bonding between the mother and her child.  It is at this time that she can talk to her child and interact with him/her giving a lot of love because this moment provides a direct connection where the impression on the child is enhanced.  She may want to talk to him/her about what is important in life and also recite prayers aloud so the child hears. Even though the child may not understand at the time what all this means, all this is greatly absorbed and leaves a lasting impression.

Dear Child also outlines recommended prayers (du’as, suras) to recite to accompany the mother for the preparation and ease of breast feeding.  

The recommended time for breastfeeding in Islam is for approximately 2 years. After that, if it has not already been done, it’s important that the mother wean the child from breast feeding. It is best to do this in a very kind and compassionate manner, with much love. As breastfeeding is not only a source of nourishment but also a source of closeness and comfort for the child. It is important that along with adequate food replacements, adequate love and quality time with the child are provided.
