It's also handy for those late night feedings when you can nudge the wife and say "he's hungry"

Her breasts are very prominent and she shouldn’t have any problem feeding the baby. She is very pretty, indeed. I like seeing her in open toes sandals. It makes her look very sexy. http://www.digitalundivide.com

Adriana Lima is somehow an authority on breastfeeding? Neither is Gisele, but at least her comments aren't idiotic. Yes, every women lactates differently, and sometimes adaptation needs to occur in different situations, but, just as importantly, since when are supermodels authorities on anything just because of their gender and supermodel status? I don't notice that Lima or Gisele have MDs and/or are OB/GYNs. Perhaps their opinions really aren't worth very much.

Adriana can voice her opinion on anything because she is so sexy. I had to listen to this video clip several time to enjoy her sexiness. I also love her accent. http://www.digitalundivide.com

Almost every MD or OB/GYN will tell you that you really should breast feed. They've been saying it for years and years. They've written it in professional journals. They've written it in magazines. No one pays much attention to them.

When a supermodel says it, though. It makes the news. It make Huffington Post. So I'm glad for Ms. Lima speaking out.

We've got a whole nation of people stumbling around wondering why autism, ADHD, deadly allergies, and obesity are on the rise. Yet no one wants to hear the answer. The answer is that our food is no longer real food, from birth to the grave.

wrong about the med advice on breastfeeding, that is why so many women's support groups and consultants have cropped up on advising new mothers and to give them CONFIDENCE. Lima expressed that she did what was right for her, not necessarily for her baby

My wife was breastfed for a long time. As a result she has a very strong immune system today, and PERFECT TEETH. She's so lucky IMO.

All three of my kids were breastfed for a year each(nothing but breatmilk for the first six months). One son has autism. One son has asthma and allergies. My daughter has auto immune disease. Do I blame it on the breast feeding? There are many ways to health. Lets not exaggerate the benefits of breastfeeding. I obviously am in favor of it, but it guarantees nothing except that your child is getting good nutrition at the time they are getting it. It is not practical or even possible for all mothers. Some mothers need to resume meds that they stopped while pregnant. Some don't produce enough milk. etc. It should be promoted reasonably and truthfully.

I was born addicted to heroin and mom left me in the hospital to fend for myself. I have perfect teeth ( no braces) I have never ever had a major illness in my life! I have never been hopspitalized, I have no allergies what so ever, and no chronic ailments. So all is not lost if a person isn't breast fed.

My ex tried breastfeeding our daughter as we agreed with the general sentiments of the benefits of breast milk however as hard as she tried, she just couldn't produce enough and the baby would just give up trying.

So we tried a pump but it was just an issue of how much (or little) she'd produce.

Really. I think they expect that it's going to come out all at once or something.All mammals make milk. It seems very strange that so many humans would lack ability. I think you're right they don't get that the demand is what builds up the supply, and everyone's is different (isn't it obvious that our breast all look different?). Some women and babies may have to feed almost constantly because while they make enough milk they don't make a lot at once. I exclusively breastfed all 3 of mine, and they thrived with no other nourishment for 6 months, but at first when I pumped, I was only able to get about an ounce or two at a time. If I compared this to what formula fed kids drink at a feeding I was like WTF? But then you consider that the time between feedings is usually about an hour or less it makes sense. I think a lot of people really don't understand how it works and that's why they don't think they make enough milk. It's an easy misconception to understand.

It is amazing how the people in the US think that breast feeding is something that should be done behind closed doors and not in public becuase oooooh, someone might see a nipple - OMG!

America is soo backwards because of the childish religious ideologies and the breastfeeding in public stems from that. It has nothing to do with modesty - it has to do with the arrogance of men telling women what is acceptable to them. Unfortunately America will always try and keep women and their bodies as a taboo and will always make it acceptable for violence to be acceptable. Arse Backwards.

America here! I had babies in late 70's and early 80's and I breast fed very openly. People were still smoking all around me and baby so I decided mine was much more natural. My dad disliked that I was so open. but oh well.
I also openly wet nursed several other babies,that weren't mine!

My wife breast feed each of the three children for a year. As a working mother she is an executive, and has her own office, so she could express, or breast feed. When she closed her door for feeding/expressing, she was left her alone during, except for phone calls, this period. We had a mobile unit, and she would express while we drove, tinted windows of course. Though I think a law is extreme, I would strongly encourage women to breast feed, or express if necessary.

Uh, it's largely the same in Europe. Sure some mothers breastfeed in parks or wherever.... but most don't. I frankly can't remember the last time I saw a breastfeeding mother in public. In the US nearly all States have laws protecting nursing. Not so here in Gerany where a shopkeeper or restaurant owner can legally throw you out the door. And it does happen. As far as I can tell France is the absolute worst.

Giselle is right. Well, she's not right about there needing to be laws. But she's definitely correct about how important breast feeding is.

I can't believe that this is even a matter that's up for debate in this day and age.

Giselles comments were a bit silly but love the enthusiasm for breastfeeding and that there are now so many glamorous role models for women considering nursing.
It's a good thing.

Breast feed your child - that's what they're for - plus its good biology. For how long, that's up to you and the child. Certainly a good way to give up surplus weight gained during term and creates a bond with the child that the bottle can't.
