I went to comment on the blog and it keeps having a page load error every time I try to submit. Makes you wonder.
I think the shock and alarm mentioned in the real AAP letter was more from parents and professionals that were hoping it to be true, not the other way around. They probably neglect to mention that in order to save face. I quit taking my kids to FAAP's because the advise they gave me as a breastfeeding mother wasn't even in line with the AAP's Breastfeeding and The Use of Human Milk by a mile. I understand that they need to get sponsorship from somewhere, but when you're getting your funding from companies that produce things that are so unhealthy (fast food, formula companies, etc), you have to wonder how that impacts what kind of treatment you receive as a patient. It's the ethical elephant in the room that someone just pointed to, much to the AAP's panic.
