I think we need to focus on reducing the premature rate as well.

Yikes! Makes it super hard. Well maybe more maternity hospitals need to look at promoting this in their wards. Perhaps 2nd+ times mums to newborns will feel comfortable doing this (first timers would most likely be too busy establishing how to bf and becoming a mum!)
Most factors that contribute to premmie babies are less now arent they (smoking, drug/alcohol, certain foods etc)? We are more aware. I can only think of age.
Oh what about mothers health, like being overweight or type 2 diabetes, is that a factor contributing to premmies?

In vitro study finds digested formula, but not breast milk, is toxic to cells
I had a letter from my maternity hospital (Mercy in Melbourne) asking me to donate when DS was about 8 weeks I think. I would have loved to and I was really impressed that they were actively reaching out to people; however I was struggling with supply so I really couldn't afford to spare any milk!

I so want to give my children BM but I struggled with supply for both and have to comp so much...this article makes me feel sadder. Anyone wants to donate BM to my 2 months old bub?? I am still giving him whatever I can but its pathetic compared to the amount of formula he's taking.
i am sure there's a lot of skeptics out there regarding this. My DH will be one. i mean, there are so many women out there who want to BF but due to a variety of reasons just can't. Then what should they do?
