    With respect, I put this in the 'celebrate breastfeeding' section to avoid any type of debate or negative comment.

    Eta: and fairly certain it did consider other variables, besides just breastfeeding, they also looked at people from different socio-economic backgrounds and...

    'They also took into account how long the parents went to school, genomic ancestry, whether mothers smoked during pregnancy, the mothers’ ages, birthweight, and delivery type.'

    Here's the actual research paper if you want to take a better look at the methodology and results (since news articles about research are notoriously terrible)

    Sorry I didn't realise the section, I'm on my phone. I'll delete my post if you can do the same with my quote.

    In all honesty you might as well have stayed in here if you were just going to repost it in a section where I feel cannot respond about why I posted it or found it interesting. I genuinely regret posting it now. I'm pretty over feeling like trying to discuss any positive about breastfeeding is an automatic stab at somebody who didn't breastfeed.

    Thanks for the study link deku.

    I'm bowing out.

    I only just saw that thread stemmed from here. Don't take it personally Holly, pretty much every single thread in the bottle feeding section has bfers posting in it too telling women to keep bfing or to chip in how wonderful breast milk is over formula.

    I guess it's an emotive topic

    I'm not going to get into a debate about it, I've asked for this thread to be deleted because I can't be bothered with this attitude anymore. I've actually never seen what you're referring to in the couple years I've been on the hub but can remember before I was even pregnant so had never breastfed thinking 'Jeeze breast feeders pretty much need to keep their mouths shut here.' Maybe it happened more in the past.

    Regardless of my thoughts I hope the mods close this soon.

    But holly it can't go both ways. I don't want to argue with you as I like you, but you can't tell me it's rude to give my disapproval of the study given the area you posted it in then say you want to be able to respond in the bottle feeding section.

    I left here to give you and others the opportunity to talk about the article in a positive way without people like me being negative. So what was I meant to do respect the breastfeeding section by deleting my post and leaving, but then not have anywhere I can discuss why I don't think the study is productive?

    That's all I'll say too. Let's agree to disagree on this, please don't let my new thread in the bottle feeding section stop you from discussing it positively in here. That wasn't my intention.

    Well my dd who refused to get off my boob for 2 years has NO excuse now to be a genius and become a doctor or lawyer and support her wonderful mother who had her tits lunched on for 2 long years 😜

    In all seriousness thanks for posting this @HollyGolightly81 it makes me realise even if dd doesn't turn out super smart at least I gave her my best shot and it's been worthwhile

    (ETA:not saying bottle feeders are not giving it their best shot....just is for me and my circumstances and my ability to breastfeed came very easily)
