    All women should breastfeed their children where possible. Giving another species milk to your kids is extremely harmful. Cows milk is meant for cows ONLY. It contains a large amount of hormones and protein to turn a 80 pound calf into a 1000 pound cow in one year. And yet you stupid women are giving this stuff to your kids. One can only guess at the effects this must have on the developing baby.

    Well at least the baby will get a lot of casein and have strong good growth. Not really that harmful, just the theory of it. Besides, we don't even absorb 1% of the hormones.

    One of my children didn't take to being breast fed at all, one was fed for 6 months and one for just over 2 years (one feed at night time on medical advice because he had severe asthma and needed my antibodies.) Didn't do him any psychological harm as far as I am aware. Bond with all 3 children is just the same, as is the love. Just goes to show we're all different and what is right for one child won't necessarily be right for the next one. All you worry about as a new parent is that your child is getting fed the right way for them. Breastfeeding is natural, not sexual, so even if your child did remember it, which is highly unlikely and near on impossible, it's hardly likely to emotionally damage them, or mother nature would have come up with an alternative long ago. And just to dispel any remaining myth, no it does not work as a method of contraception. Number 3 son is living proof of that!

    Why would we guess? We can directly measure it.

    I was only breastfed for a few days until my mother gave up - she didn't get the support she needed to learn how to properly latch etc. and it just wasn't working. I will definitely breast feed my kids and will make a point of seeing a lactation consultant/joining breast feeding support groups etc. to make sure I have the necessary support
