finally, an article on a major news site that supports breastfeeding over formula...

its about time a major news organization started to combat some of the rabid pro-formula propaganda that is out there. i've had enough. i'm officially joining the cult of militant lactivists. children that are breastfed are healthier and smarter. i understand that there are women who can't breastfeed because they are ill or they don't make milk, but i don't want to hear anymore "mommy war" garbage about keeping quiet so i don't offend the ones that just simply chose to formula feed. breastfeeding is better for babies now and in their later life. breastfed babies grow into adults with lower incidences of diabetes. breastfeeding moms have lower rates of breast cancer. formula isn't as good. it's full of corn syrup solids and, in some cases, melamine. chemicals...chemicals...chemicals. ridiculous.

now, we have a study that shows formula fed babies gain extra weight! when a child breastfeeds, not on a schedule, but how nature intended, by demand, the mother's body makes the right amount of milk for the baby and the baby eats the right amount of milk for their own development. period. Twisted Evil now, that's what i'm talking about.

Hey thanks for posting, my wife enjoyed reading that. I agree 100% It is better to breast feed. It is amazing how a females body works when she has a baby and she is breast feeding.

i'm glad she enjoyed it Aaron! its always nice to meet Southern men that are pro-breastfeeding. you'd be surprised how many women don't even get the support they need from their husbands. thankfully my husband is pro-breastfeeding as well.
