The Importance of Breastfeeding

This is a fantastic article about the importance of breastfeeding and how it is even MORE important that vaccinations. I breastfed my son for almost 10 months and I am planning on breastfeeding my daughter for at least a year (we’re almost at 5 months!). It is so important to breastfeed and there really is no reason not to. It’s FREE. It’s MUCH healthier (can’t even compare to formula). And it creates a special bond between you and your child. Formula is none of those. (I understand that some people can’t for medical reasons etc. and I understand that and sympathize with them). Companies who make formula can “try” to make it as close to breast milk as possible. They can add calcium, vitamins, etc. but they can NOT add antibodies!
