Re: Interesting BF Article!!

I read something, i think on a brochure or leaflet or something, that bre@stmilk is higher in carbohydrates which is ideal for brain and cognative developement, whereas formula is higher in protein, which is ideal for physical developement.

Great article! I thought it was sad though that even the very supported moms were down to 60% still bfing at 6 months (I think that's what it said anyway)

I rarely suggest anyone reads leaflets Especially from pediatrician's offices and health centers, as they're usually provided by formula companies.

Breastmilk is THE appropriate food for babies. No substitute is ideal, and certainly no substitute is superior for any kind of development.
