Breast feeding: My Baby is not a Cow

Posted Feb 01 2008 12:00am

All parents know that breast milk is still the best for new born babies until he reaches the age of three. But it seems that not all parents realize this. Cow’s milk is the best for babies, but it is only for baby cows. It is nutritionally incompatible with humans, most of whom are actually allergic to the substance. Cow's milk is a foreign substance that has pervaded every corner of our diets—starting with artificial infant feeds, but finding its way into mother's breast milk through the foods she eats as well. Although so much has been said about the advantages of breast milk over cow’s milk, I still would like to share this simple acronym I saw recently in a local hospital:

BREAST FEEDING
