Want to give your baby the best? Feed him/her only mother’s milk for the first 12 months. An added incentive is it helps the mother’s health, also. I thought everybody knew breastfeeding was the ideal until a woman asked me if the new report from the Annals of Internal Medicine , which reiterates this, was accurate. October’s Annals updates previous recommendations by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force that health-care providers should do all they can to actively support breast feeding.
Why do they feel the need to call for more support?
