Breastfeeding in the News

Hello! One of my pleasures is reading news and current events while my babe naps or spend times with his grandma. I've read a few interesting articles regarding the breastfeeding world recently and I want to share.


The link below is an interview between an Attachment Parenting International (API) blogger and Mayim Bialik, who among many roles (Big Bang Theory actress, neuro-scientist) is also a La Leche League participant.  Mayim discusses at length her thoughts on attachment parenting and her support for extended breastfeeding.

Time magazine online has an article explaining that the American Academy of Pediatricians has shifted their policy language regarding breastfeeding. It is no longer seen as a "lifestyle choice" by this group - they see it as an important public health issue. Details can be found in the link below.
