one more on the subject of earth day

i should of course point out the obvious - breastfeeding is earth-friendly!

here are two wonderful links that talk about it -
Breastmilk: the perfect renewable resource

from La Leche League

a few of the highlights - "The undermining of breastfeeding is the destruction of a natural resource and should therefore be seen in the same light as logging in the rainforests or overfishing our seas and rivers."

"If 50% of infants born in Canada (total births about 400,000 per year) are bottlefed for six months, then more than 15 million tin cans would be discarded."
