Let me say I'm not a bf "Nazi" I believe in breastfeeding and its benefits but I will not attack those who do not share my beliefs. I just found this very interesting and knowledge is power!

I respect all mommies theories on here, but I do have to say that this article is talking about an intestinal condition that happens in premature babies. It's common knowledge that breastfeeding a newborn baby even for a couple days has great benefits. It enables them to have healthy digestive systems and immune support, especially if you BF for a month or more. It is not realistic for busy mommies to BF for more than 6 weeks in most cases or BF exclusively. In my case at 4 months, I BF and supplement formula sometimes in situations of being overwhelmed in being a SAHM with two small children. It's not fair to my 3 year old that I have a baby on my titty LITERALLY 7 plus hours a day. I'm only with him for 12. It's not for everyone and this will upset people that have decided to formula feed exclusively. I had to with my first turned 3 months for a severe case of mastitis that led to surgery and home health for two months and amongst others serious health issues due to BF. It's not always a safe and I don't really care how others feed their baby just as long as they are fed and healthy. But the article is interesting if your baby is premature.....
