Re the fat storage thing, tis why I'm not too fussed about loosing weight while breastfeeding,I know a lot of chemicals are released from your fat stores while you loose weight.
It's all about stuff we have induced through our life...not just through preg and then b feeding
Maybe ideal to feed for 3/6 months then stop..obviously great benfits to baby through breast milk..but maybe not a good idea to feed for as long as we once have been told..
I agree with cutting certain things out, but not purely for breastfeeding. I think our bodies could definitely benefit from it.
I also think its sad they are going to reduce the recommended age in Norway now because of this.
I think its a bit silly to argue this is a reason not to breastfeed when most research Still indicates slightly better health outcomes for breastfed babies. Breastmilk plays a huge role in the developing gut and more and more research is showing how valuable it is. We and our babies are exposed to toxins every single day. Obviously our bodies do have the ability to deal with them for the most part. Although its scary how polluted the world is unless you have some ability to sheild your baby from all toxins I don't see why it would effect someone's choice to bf.
