I was reading the following article and thought perhaps a good topic would be to ask what you think your baby would say?
Whether you BF, EP, working & pumping, Tube-fed, Combo-fed or FF? - what do you think your baby would say about any of the above methods - if he or she could talk?
__Babies Speak Out For Breastfeeding__
=> I have fewer colds.
=> I have fewer upper respiratory infections.
=> I have a much better chance of not getting diabetes.
=> I am a breastfeeding girl which means I have greater protection against breast cancer (and so does my mother).
=> I have greater protection against digestive problems such as Crohn's disease and Celiac's disease.
=> I am a preemie and my mother's milk helps keep me from getting a serious illness called NEC or Necrotizing Enterocolitis, which can be fatal.
=> My mother's milk matches 50% of my genetic material.
=> The scientist, Dr. Mark Cregan, in Australia says many of the ways that breastmilk protects me may not be obvious until I am 30 years old or older.
=> My grandmother wishes she had known about these benefits when she had my mother.
