Having recently been blessed with a newborn baby girl, I don't see any problem with breastfeeding. I think it's great that there is a natural way of feeding. What I will say is that our little girl is like her dad at that age and likes to feed, so we have to top up with formula. I turned out fine (so far) but certainly encourage others to use natural resources first :)

Ever notice how people in general don't like to think of themselves as animals? That we're superior and thus exempt from being part of the animal kingdom; instead we're lords of such kingdom!

There is a push for us not to breastfeed, that we don't "need" to do so since we have formula and bottles to replace what nature bestowed upon us.

What I find dismaying is that every person who raises animals of any kind and especially horses knows the importance of ensuring they get colostrum - the first milk - because it is so important to providing immunity. So how is it we can ignore that importance to babies?

It reminds me of why I knew limiting salt was a strange idea. Every pasture owner knows that they should keep salt out free choice for animals to be healthy. (Excess salt is NOT the problem - an imbalance of other nutrients like potassium and calcium compared to salt intake are.)
