Interesting Read

It's well known, documented, etc., that breast milk is the best source of nutrition for babies. The benefits of breast milk are truly amazing, and I am surprised when, for no "valid" reason, mothers do not want to give breastfeeding a try. "It's going to make my boobs shrink and get all nasty". That would be an actual quote from a labor patient of mine!

In the US, we are trying to educate patients about the benefits of nursing. In the Philippines,it a step further! Take a peek!

Awesome article! I was just at the bookstore today reading up about nursing a toddler... I have the book Mothering Your Nursing Toddler on order.

It's a good thing!

Bummer...it wouldn't let me access the article. I had a mesage saying I was not authorized. :(
Can you give a recap?

I think I fixed it. Something with the link I posted. Blogger can frustrate me. Worked for Steph but not you. I don't get it!
