The mother’s milk is a great immunization factor in babies. The child who is not breastfed is deprived of maternal contact with the mother. The child is deprived of the milk and of the sense of protection that comes from being held on the Mother’s lap. This child will have a tendency to develop lactose intolerance.

When the child is not breastfed, it reveals that the Mother does not wish to feed him, to protect him, or to take care of him personally.

This decision may reflect the Mother’s conscientious will due to discomfort, time constraints, or any other reasons. It may also be because the Mother does not produce milk. However, mothers who do not produce milk are those to whom the body simply shows (by not creating milk) that they have little desire to feed the child.

Breast mastitis is an inflammation of the mammal glands caused by the concentration of milk and is more common during post partum, mainly following the first gestation. The mastitis may occur in one or two breasts at the same time and the symptoms include pain, swelling, redness, and increased temperature of the breasts. It shows that breastfeeding is not an easy process for the Mother of the new-born child. It is natural and desirable that all children be breastfed by their mothers. It is through breastfeeding by the Mother that the child experiences with greater harmony the passage from the world of unity, from where he came, into the world of duality he entered, upon earthly incarnation. The child spent nine months sheltered in the Mother’s womb, completely fed and loved in a totally darkened environment, sheltered from outside interventions. The child was literally part of the Mother. Delivery is a violent moment of descent into the world of duality for the Mother and for the child, although it was desired by both.. It is a moment of difficult adaptation for the child. To be deprived from the physical contact of regular breastfeeding with the Mother is a violent event for the child. When this happens, the passage between the two worlds is done without transition, without gradual adaptation. Besides, as stated above, the mother’s milk is a great source of immunization and, in this case, the child is deprived of it.

In some cases, the child does not tolerate the mother’s milk. Intolerance of mother’s milk must be considered in the same manner we consider intolerance of cow’s milk. The intolerance of cow’s milk is much more common. The child who is lactose intolerant is a child who, whenever in the presence of milk, is reminded that his Mother left him and, at that moment, develops a skin problem. Skin problems always indicate separation. And, after all, that is what happened. The child felt the separation from the Mother. The lactose intolerance is no more than a reminder of the separation from the Mother.

In the whole animal world, milk symbolizes the Mother and the relation with the Mother.

Let us now consider the opposite case, the case of the adolescent or teenager who drinks milk every chance he gets. This also shows a problem with the biological Mother but, in this case, it shows the inability to cut the umbilical cord. This is the child who continues to need his mother. In the case of females, they will have a difficult time assuming the role of mothers if they bear children, since they still consider themselves simply as daughters.

In the case of men, they will have the tendency to select women who resemble their Mothers. They anticipate problems with their spouses whom they will treat as if they were their mothers, and not their wives.
