Perhaps once we start looking at the issue more flexibly we will start providing more meaningful assistance to women to enable more or better breast feeding. Maybe instead of talking in terms of physically 'can' vs physically 'cannot', we should have a scale which incorporates mental and physical degrees of ability, support available to the mother, health barriers, etc.

Breastfeeding has well-established short-term benefits, particularly the reduction of morbidity and mortality due to infectious diseases in childhood.
This is why I want to try to bf even a few days if I can. I do believe colostrum does give short term immunity to stuff like rota virus etc which is important in the newborn stage before all their needles.
It's the long term benefits that several studies seem to be dismissing, including the sibling study of over 8000 kids that shows no difference except a tiny change is asthma.
So yes, tell women it's important for immunity, that it does have short term benefits. But med pros need to stop with making out it creates super beings.

The lack of milk production isn't what's giving us PND. I argue it's the pressure around us - if we don't bf we are failures.

With colostrum- you can start expressing and freezing that from about 37 weeks? Handy
