Breastfeeding is the feeding of an infant or young child with breast milk directly from female human breasts (i.e., via lactation) rather than from a baby bottle or other container. (wikipedia)

Positive Feedback: Lactation involves positive feedback in that the more the baby sucks, the more milk is produced, via a surge in prolactin secretion (adapted from wikipedia)
