Anyone else see that banner?    They claim to have nurses and LC's on call for new moms... who wants to call and "test" their info??   :)

Oh, gads... the info just on the site is awful!

YEP they piss me off, they told me to supplement because my baby was fussy and to use a formula with added rice starch because its most likely reflux

Omg the supplementing page makes me SOOOOO mad!! That's not supplementing! That's "this is how you end up fully formula feeding". Grr....

I HATE how they say that they're supportive of breastfeeding, then give horrible advice so the moms will end up using formula.

Common sense tells me if it's funded by a formula company it's not going to be accurate for successfully breastfeeding. It pisses me off that there are many out there who think it is accurate.
