Breastfeeding makes us stupid

A great commentary…

Breastfeeding makes us stupid

How’s that for a title? I do not mean, of course, that breastfeeding makes babies stupid; breastfeeding is important for growing brains. What I mean is that talking about breastfeeding seems to make the grownups stupid.

and another in the same vein…

It’s not about picking on moms, it’s about breaking down societal barriers

I’m getting tired of hearing the same old thing over and over again. Every time a study comes out that talks about the benefits of breastfeeding, whether it is the benefits to the child, the benefits to the mom, or the benefits to society in general, people get their noses out of joint. They say things like “don’t make moms feel guilty for formula feeding” or “quit picking on moms who don’t breast-feed“.
