Biblical Breastfeeding

In honor of Easter, I decided to do some research to see if breastfeeding was mentioned in the bible. To my surprise....I found some!!!!!

Genesis 21:7
And she added, "Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? Yet I have borne him a son in his old age." 8 The child grew and was weaned, and on the day Isaac was weaned Abraham held a great feast.

Genesis 49:25
"because of your father's God, who helps you, because of the Almighty, who blesses you with blessings of the heavens above, blessings of the deep that lies below, blessings of the breast and womb."

[Song of Solomon 8:1
If only you were to me like a brother, who was nursed at my mother's breasts! Then, if I found you outside, I would kiss you, and no one would despise me. 

These are only a few I came across. Pretty neat, huh?

Happy Easter everyone!
