Hey Guys, I came across this article about the benefits of BFing, and there were some things that were both amazing, and I had never heard before!

For instance:

--BFing your baby girl reduces HER risk of breast cancer by 25%!
--BF babies, for their entire life, are less likely to reject transplanted organs.
--Your body can sense even a one degree difference in your babies temp, and your breasts will warm up in order to warm up your baby!

I only BFed my DS for a month because he was allergic to milk and a million other things. I also had terrible bleeding nipples and other problems. I wish I would have read more and seen an LC more and changed my diet so that I could BF him. He would have been so much healthier! He has athsma and had chronic ear infections. These are things that can be prevented from BFing... :(


With my DD I was determined. I read tons of books about breastfeeding, researched, and talked
