Breastfeeding (and extended Breastfeeding!) is Nature's Health Plan

A couple of great blog posts appeared today. This one shows some video clips about how nursing is normal. It shows pictures of moms nursing in public as well as some great breastfeeding quotes.

And this post shows possibly the most famous breastfed baby in the world. Initially I was shy about nursing in public too, particularly church...but then I read on some forum that "Jesus was breastfed" which helped me get over that fear...and there is no better way to keep a baby or toddler quiet during the sermon than nursing!!! ;)

Yes, I can remember being in the back row of a service nursing my son. Afterward everyone kept saying how he was such a good baby, so quiet they didn't even know he was back there. I didn't reveal my secret weapon! :)

I can't get over how much info researchers keep learning about the benefits of full term nursing. It's wonderful, but never am I surprised by the information itself, just the fact that no one really knew it before. Recently they learned that nursing beyond two years decreases the risk of Diabetes Type 2. Breastfeeding is absolutely nature's health plan.
