Haven't had a chance to listen to the whole segment...but thought someone might want to listen to it. It is a segment on breastfeeding and black women.

NPR All Things Considered Segment. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...ryId=121755349

Trying to balance a preschooler and peace....

i also wanted to say that i'm native american and we have the highest rate of diabetes per capita and the second lowest rate of breastfeeding. that makes me sad!!!

THANK YOU for posting this, I only came across it today because I haven't been on MDC for a while.

My dp asked me if I heard it when it aired. He was very surprised to hear about something bf'ing related when I hadn't yet!

Since '05 just me and B, but in 2/08 E made three!
