This is great to hear from the AAP... when I heard recenlty (last year) that some of the breastfeeding campaigns were shut down when the formula companies threatened to take their dollars & run, it made me a little disturbed! (& then more recently there were the warnings about co-sleeping & of course we know there are a few dollars to be lost by the crib manufactorers if we know we don't need them!) It's good to hear them talking up breastmilk even though there's no money in it!!
