The Benefits Of Breastfeeding For Infants And Mothers

This always brings out an emotional response. I am with stauger. My milk never came in despite the hard work of me, baby, nurses, lactation consultants, supplements, you name it. The guilt was really tough. I have to say that my son is strong and healthy and formula made that possible. Kenny should really research the facts about the benefits of breast feeding. The benefits are often over stated or at a minimum hard to verify to due to the challenges of researching this topic.

I totally support stronger family leave policies to support breastfeeding and family bonding, but I think we should have a more honest discussion about the verifiable benefits of breastfeeding. But be aware that the haters are out of control on this topic
