Just responding to Kavita's comments in the weekly thread- about how in this type of devastating circumstance, breastfeeding can really mean the difference between life and death for infants and toddlers!

There have been some great discussions on the MDC Breastfeeding Support and Advacacy sections about this, so just wanted to post the links here for you all to read in case you don't frequent that area of the site:
