the straight dope on BFing


my favorite lines:

Breast-fed babies have a lower risk of postneonatal death, higher resistance to infectious diseases, less chance of developing Type 1 or 2 diabetes, lower incidence of obesity, and possibly higher intelligence
Admittedly, sensible breast-feeding isn't made easier by bizarro attitudes in the U.S., where the female breast is routinely displayed for commercial purposes but you risk society's wrath if you publicly suckle your kid.
so so true
