Comment: Today, the trend of artificial feeding is very common. Women do not want to feed babies naturally. It is said that with artificial feeding, the mother does not have a feeling of love for the child.
Answer: It is natural. We know that love arises for someone who is dear. And since we are egoists, the one in whom we invest is dear to us. After all, you invest yourself, something of your own. And then part of what you invested in him is dear to you.
It turns out that it is not the child himself who is dear to you, but it is you who gave birth to him, raised him, and so on. Therefore, the more difficult the birth, the more the mother loves the child. And with a Cesarean section, this is not the case.
The same is true when breastfeeding. If the baby arrives as a result of a Cesarean section, then the milk may not appear, since the impulse toward it is given during childbirth. According to Kabbalah, all the hormones and everything that surrounded the baby in the uterus that created, guarded, and shaped him, rises up to the milk system, and then milk begins to be produced.
It is the system that took care of him internally that goes to the next level, and feeding begins. The milk is the same blood that has risen to a level at which a child can absorb it. Blood is the lower level, milk is the next.
Kabbalah says that a child born naturally should be nursed for up to two years, that is, 24 months. But this does not mean that the baby should be fed only milk.
In general, during the period of breastfeeding, the child should receive women’s milk, but not necessarily from his mother. There are many such examples in the Bible.
