Breastfeeding and the Use of Human Milk

(American Academy of Pediatrics Newest Policy Statement)

Considerable advances have occurred in recent years in the scientific knowledge of the benefits of breastfeeding, the mechanisms underlying these benefits, and in the clinical management of breastfeeding. This policy statement on breastfeeding replaces the 1997 policy statement of the American Academy of Pediatrics and reflects this newer knowledge and the supporting publications. The benefits of breastfeeding for the infant, the mother, and the community are summarized, and recommendations to guide the pediatrician and other health care professionals in assisting mothers in the initiation and maintenance of breastfeeding for healthy term infants and high-risk infants are presented.


WOO HOO!!! Alicia, you just made my day!!

I have printed out this article and know several pediatricians who will get highlighted copies ! ! !

Especially the baby on the belly part, the suctioning, the assessing and APGARS, etc etc ! ! I was making such a fuss about it when I was reading it my kids had to come in to see why mom was laughing and wooping so much. Tee Hee. It is in their "own" publication and not coming from an "easily ignored midwife source"!

I sort of feel like saying "Nah nah nah nah nah!!!" and doing a kooky victory dance

Thank you SO MUCH for sharing this! Amazing that God's design works, isn't it?
