Great idea, I was thinking just say "No benefit then why does the World Health Orginization recommend it?" It seems to me I read something about the AAP finding it beneficial, I don't know that they go as far as recommending it but they will in a few years if they aren't scared of making moms mad that don't want to. You do not have an out there view on it afterall WHO recommends it.
