Re: Deciding not to breast feed in advancei

I don't think the "countless benefits" of breastmilk are at all overlooked. In fact I think they are grossly overstated. Are there benefits? Absolutely. But not a single one is a guarantee of anything. Can BM increase IQ? Maybe-by like a point. Does it decrease the likelihood of obesity? Probably, but not enough to override any portion of anyone's lifestyle post booby milk. Does it decrease instances of allergies, I dunno there seem to be a lot of mamas on here with BFed babies who have a bunch of them.

Yes, the benefits are numerous. But also VERY minor.

Excepting of course any medical issues. Medical issues ALWAYS change the game.
