We've received lots of questions recently on the controversial study comparing breastfed and formula fed siblings. The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine has put together a great response analyzing the flaws of this study and its relevance.

A lovely article about nursing in public from the perspective of a Jesuit priest who's the uncle of a breastfed baby. Enjoy!

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) 2013 Statement on Breastfeeding and the Use of Human Milk affirms their support of The Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding of the Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative. The Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative does not permit the distribution of formula marketing materials. LLL USA encourages the AAP to reconsider the arrangement with Mead-Johnson that allows inclusion of the AAP logo on the formula company's marketing bags.  We look forward to reading of the progress made by the AAP Section on Breastfeeding and appreciate their work to stop the distribution of these materials.  

Sincerely,
The LLL USA Council

We are still planning to publish it electronically for the foreseeable future. You can purchase printed copies from MagCloud if you wish. MagCloud has great sales, and that's a good time to purchase several issues at once.

Mother-to-mother breastfeeding information and support
Introduction
La Leche League USA was founded in 2009 to provide a national LLL organization and to offer a new way to serve mothers and babies in the USA.

Our mission is to help mothers to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother.
