Complicated: A-Z of Modern Women’s Fiqh - 08 - Breastfeeding Practices

“Breast is best” or “Fed is best”? While cultural debates on breastfeeding rage on, Shaykh Waleed Basyouni returns us to the Islamic perspective, only to reveal a middle ground. He also shares research on the benefits of breastfeeding — from the baby’s intellectual growth to her mother-baby bond — and how culture can influence breastfeeding practices in a halal way.

Also in this episode: Shaykh Waleed challenges the sometimes unrealistic expectation that every mother must nurse her child for two years.
