Many of you want to know what the deal is with milk donation. I started writing about it in my blog, and realized people still had questions because the answers weren't all in one place.<br><br><a href="http://www.breastfeedingsymbol.org/2007/09/02/thinking-of-donating-your-breastmilk-read-this-first/" target="_blank">I've done my best to try and put it all in one post to make it easier for everyone to understand.</a> It's long, but it's as complete as I could make it. I'm also updating my signature file so that it links to this page. Please ask questions if you still have some by the time you've finished reading.<br><br>
Thanks.

I am still completely aghast at the rebuttal article to the breastfed or else article. They call themselves DOCTORS? do they work for a formula company or what? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

You know what? I don't know the answer to that question. What's really wrong with <a href="http://www.stats.org/stories/breast_feed_nyt_jun_20_06.htm" target="_blank">that article</a> is that it cites very few studies and uses that handful of studies about breastfeeding and breastmilk to support their hypothesis. There are <i>hundreds</i>, if not <i>thousands</i>, of studies on breastfeeding and breast milk, countless papers, dissertations, and books written on the subject... I am really disappointed that they chose so few of them to base their "compelling" arguments on. It's a very dismissive way to do it, and it does make me wonder, too, if they received any funding from the <a href="http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=International_Formula_Council" target="_blank">IFC</a> or anyone who profits off the sale of formula for reporting the "facts" with that spin.<br><br>
Good question.
