  • I breasted all 3 sons. All were scholar athletes, college grads with advanced degrees, and now successful professionals with good health and no obesity.

  • Having breast fed 3 children totally for 6monthds prior to starting solids and then as long as each child showed interest-by 15 months they were the most independent and socially interactive with peers kids-not fat,one went to the Olympics in college and the other 2 participated in gymnastics.

  • I was pleasantly surprised to see this quiz. Just in time for World Breastfeeding Month!
