Need help ASAP, with a college paper on breastfeeding

Hello. I have to do a persuasive essay for my college English class, and I want to write about breastfeeding. I want to persuade people to see and understand the many benefits of breastfeeding. My problem is finding good, scholarly resources for this paper. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance ladies.

What is your main argument? Is it just "Breastfeeding is Good" or does it reach farther? What audience are you trying to persuade, and what is the desired end result of your persuading? i.e. hoping that people who would just choose formula would take a look at breastfeeding? Or something else? :)

Kellymom has a lot of information that is backed by research and other sources.  In my opinion, there are no benefits of breastfeeding because it is the norm.  There are risks of NOT breastfeeding.

I'm going with a title such as Breastfeeding is Best feeding. I want people to be more encouraged to breastfeed, or encourage someone they know to breastfeed. I want to present people with why they (or someone they know) should breastfeed.
