B Theory of Breastfeeding: Baby-Breast-Brain-Backup Axis (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction)
Breast is best. The World Health Organization recommends that exclusive breastfeeding for at least the first six months after birth. Breastfeeding 10 times a day and each lasts for 30 minutes for 180 days; that sum up to 54,000 minutes devoted for "healthy next generation". Wang (2008) propose the B theory of breastfeeding: Baby-Breast-Brain-BackUp axis, an interpretation and application of the lactation mechanism with a new perspective. Breastfeeding is involving physical, psychological and social aspects of life. How does the lactation consultant based on counseling skills, apply the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) to empower breastfeeding women, who can activate the positive brain feedback, prompt oxytocin reflexes, and bravely express individual needs. A breastfeeding friendly society therefore be fostered and the breastfeeding family could truly enjoy their breastfeeding goals & lives.

Communications/Connection and Conflict Resolution Within the Extended Family
One of the biggest differences between Eastern culture and Western culture the tight connection of family. In Eastern culture, there is a traditional culture for postpartum practice called “doing the month (DTM) ”. Including dietary taboos, lifestyle restriction, such as No hair washing, no bathing, and also parental self-regulation. This kind of confinement is very difficult for the young generation, and it causes a lot of conflicts within family. Based on affection exchange theory(AFE), by using active listening skills to accept the expressions of both parties. To praise ANY behavior whichever is nicer to the other. To facilitate the mutual experiences on positive feelings in the same living target, connecting and caring all people’s needs on-site. Acting is considered as a connector, to emphasize and to enlarge the two parties' commonality. Hence, the consensus building and the making the feasible strategies for a change are necessary.
