Ancient Breastfeeding

Ancient Egyptians believed in breastfeeding

Even pagans realized the divine value of breastfeeding. Take another look at the relief. Notice how the person she’s breastfeeding isn’t a baby. Now I know pagans engaged in all kinds of strange and sinful customs, but there were cross-cultural similarities between different ancient people groups, irrespective of the worship of YHWH. Commentaries such as the NIV Study Bible attest to these similarities.
