Normally I write about nutrition as it pertains to adults, teens, elementary school kids and even for toddlers, but today I'd like to point out that the American Dietetic Association is in support of breastfeeding. In their words:
"It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that exclusive breastfeeding provides optimal nutrition and health protection for the first 6 months of life and breastfeeding with complementary foods from 6 months until at least 12 months of age is the ideal feeding pattern for infants. Breastfeeding is an important public health strategy for improving infant and child morbidity and mortality and improving maternal morbidity and helping to control health care costs."
