In light of the information below, any argument/statement against breast-feeding seems awfully hallow.

"Here's a list of conditions where studies have shown positive evidence-based effects for breast-feeding for infants:

Acute Otitis Media
Atopic Dermatis
Gastrointestinal Infections
Lower Respiratory Infections
Cognitive Development
Type 1 & Type 2 Diabetes
Risks of Cardiovascular Diseases
Infant Mortality
Childhood Leukemia
Infant Mortality

Chris, I strongly agree with you! It's just too bad that not everyone has the ability to stay home for the ideal 6 month-1 year with their baby. It makes nursing so much easier.

Your comment reminded me that I forgot to post a link sent to me by a reader. Very enlightening!

It's a 20-20 segment from a few years back about how the American Academy of Pediatrics efforts to place TV ads about the benefits of breastfeeding were thwarted by business interests that lobbied the gov't.

Here's the link

It is a good site explaining about the health benefits of breast feeding and it will be very helpful for the first time mothers. Thanks!!
