I just read something that said "not breastfeeding has been linked with increased risk of sids"... and the main reason more woman are not aware of this is so we do not put guilt on mothers for choosing not to breastfeed!
What do you think?
(Please give me one moment to post the link below so you can read it in full)
the american sids institute, the mayo clinic, and many other highly recognized institutes back this theory and list breastfeeding as a way to decrease the risk of sids, for a few reasons: They also concluded that breastfeeding was protective against respiratory and gastrointestinal infections, two factors that have been implicated in increasing the risk of SIDS; They concluded that breastfeeding is second only to back position as a protective factor against SIDS; Experiments show that breastfeeding babies are more easily aroused from sleep. Breastfeeding benefits a baby’s immune system. As a result, babies may be less likely to succumb to infections that could trigger a SIDS event.
