maybe. i also think mothers who bother to breastfeed are also perhaps going to be the ones who tend to be extra thoughtful and conscientious about how they raise their babies. it's like that argument that kids who go to preschool do better in school. i don't know if it's the extra year of napping and eating paste. it's probably that their parents are interested in their schooling. but then, i was never breastfed so what do i know. my poor mom. she feels guilty.

There's a lot of research that has been doin on the benfits of breastfeeding. There are numerous health benefits for the baby and the mom.

I did a lot of research about breastfeeding before my daughter was born. I bought several books on the subject. She's still nursing at two years old. The WHO recommends a minimum of two years nursing. Before my daughter was born I was planning only to breastfeed for 6 months. The more I read on the subject, and the benefits I could clearly see after she was born. I decided to let her nurse until she was ready to quite. These days she mainly nurses when she is tired or wants to be comforted.
