I can't believe someone would say this

by Nikki Montgomery

I know there are a lot of different opinions on breastfeeding. The newest one I heard against breastfeeding is that all the toxins in your body get into your breast milk and poison your baby. There are no studies to back up that statement. There are studies however that show how much better for baby breast milk is than formula, but formula isn't bad for your baby either. While that statement is absurd this Facebook post is worse. Why would you deny your child the health benefits of breast milk just because you think they'll have an easier time in life because they're a boy.

What are your thoughts?

If you have any questions on breastfeeding talk to a lactation consultant. If you don't have one call mine Lora Harris at Ministry Saint Michael's hospital. she's great!
