127. But it's not "VS. Natural Breastfeeding!"
It says, as I do you and I, that breast feeding is the best. Nowhere does it say not to breastfeed, or to give babies formula over breastmilk, and also it does not say give solids to newborns! 4 months old is not a newborn.

Apparently, they used to say no solids till 6 months or older. Now, they are saying 6 months might be too long, judging by what we're seeing in the renowned childrens health centres we work in, and that you can introduce solids sooner. It also say to continue breastfeeding as normal while this exploration of solids is going on.

How sinister!

And what makes you think that the old information (the 6 month recommendation) is any better than this new release? It came from doctors too. Who's to say what is natural behaviour for humans and what is best for your health? A doctor, that's who.

Also, I'm not sure I get your dig on Sagan, a man who comitted his life to the spread of knowlege, and did a wonderful job of it.
