100 reasons to breastfeed

Here's a page from a great new breastfeeding site with 100 points on what's good about breastfeeding. It's all backed up with links to the studies, and to be honest the information blows me away. Totally. For example, we know that skin to skin contact is vital for newborn's development but I just read that your breasts can detect a one degree change in your baby's temperature and adjust the milk temperature accordingly. Wow!
