Recently, more and more women are trying to feed their children with breast milk; every year more and more new information appears that allows them to feed their children longer.

Many women will wonder and say, what can be difficult in applying the baby to the breast, the woman’s mother, her quot; will work “; maternal instinct and everything will go as it should. However, not all so simple. In order to determine quot; Whether the mother has such an instinct, the scientists conducted an experiment. The object of the experiment was a monkey, which from birth was separated from its relatives. And when she gave birth, the monkey very bravely defended her cub “worked”; instinct to preserve the offspring, but did not breast-feed. It turns out that she simply could not do this, and there was no instinct of that, as it turned out! She could not watch how her relatives did it. She was troubled by the breast, because the milk was coming, but that the baby had to be attached to her, she simply did not have the information. The monkey rubbed her breast, after a while she experimentally learned to express her milk, but still she did not get to give it to her baby, she drank it all herself. Then the scientists began to teach the female to show her video films, in which the monkeys nursed the cubs, the only way she could learn to feed the cub.
