when I was a midwifery student I had a client who exclusively breastfed a baby from 10 lbs to 14 pounds in about 5 weeks. She was told by her paed to stop exclusively breastfeeding because a baby that big needed more than just breastmilk.... uhhh, duuh, how do you think the baby FREAKIN' GREW THAT BIG??? On lovely breastmilk of course. The lack of logic astounds.

From an online conversation recently, and I paraphrase: OBs are doctors with special training. CNMs are nurses with special training. So who would want a nurse when they could have a doctor? No one goes in, even with a cold, and says, "Eh, no, I don't need a doctor, just let me see the nurse."
