    Thanks for this link, it came at the best time. I had to do a post about pro-breastfeeding and used that as a reference.

    The article made me feel great about breastfeeding my son too! Even though the downside are well, kinda unslightly breasts (I may just be speaking for myself here, lol). But who cares if it'll make you healthier?

    Breasts change from pregnancy, anyway. And anyway, even if bfing did make your breasts droop, that is what good bra's are for.

    True, plus I'd rather have droopy, scary breasts than nice ones with my kid not having good teeth.
