The KC Star featured an article a couple weeks back about a new breast milk depot opening at a local hospital - great! The article, however, indirectly quoted a lactation consultant as saying "Many women can't produce milk." The word 'many' irritated me, so I wrote a letter and it got published! Just thought I'd share.

Good! I read that article too when it came out and was annoyed by that statement as well. Thanks for doing what I had in my head to do!
