 Great!!
But, I must completely disagree with #67.  I formula fed dd#1, and I got WAY more sleep then I do now, or when i breastfed ds!

that probably has to do with temperament and personality rather than method of feeding.

Nope!  All angel babies....  It was and is definately the method of feeding.  Thanks though!

SUPER, SUPER, SUPER.........ESPECIALLY #65 "Breast Milk provides natural pain relief for Baby"...........SO TRUE.  When I was bf my little ones, right after they got their shots, they were put to bf and cried very little.

YES, the BOOB  cures ALL lol. Works like a charm, I used it when I hit her head on the door jam, poor baby. and when she gets her shots!!! Works like no other. and I don't have to worry about remembering to do the tylenol thing!!!

I love it!  I printed the entire list and next time I get a weary look when BF'ing my son somewhere.. or next time my family and friends want to know why I am going to BF until at least a year I am going to hand them this list and tell them maybe when they are done reading they will understand!  I'm just grateful my hubby is so supportive! 

Thanks for posting this!!

I printed the list to give to my pediatrician, he is one of those: "Breastmilk and formula are pretty much the same really"...   What a great resource!

 I have to disagree on a couple of those. my daughter has eczema and a rash on her face and has had it since she was 3 weeks old (she is now 10 weeks), also less spit up. haha. not a chance she is even on baby zantac and still spits up. also the oridontal work, i was a breastfed baby and i needed braces.

but other than that it was very informative. it makes me love breastfeeding that much more.
