    breastfeeding is the best for infants but i do not agree that the lenght of period for which an infant is breastfed is associated with any particular socioeconomic class

    I disagree with the part that suggests women of a higher socioeconomic group are twice as likely to breastfeed longer than those of a lower socioeconomic status. Can someone give a rationale to this school of thought?

    breast feeding provides the infant immunity to fight infections until they start producing their own

    Breastfeeding is the healthiest way of feeding your child. Not only does it protect your child from infections and diseases but it also contributes to a greater physical and emotional bond between mother and baby. I strongly disagree with the statement that mothers of the highest socio-economic status are twice as likely to breastfeed for an extended period of time. Women in developing countries often times don't have the financial resourse to buy formula and breastfeeding is FREE, natural and the most desired cultural way of feeding a neonatal.

    Breastfeeding is cheap. Breast milk is readily available and at the right temperature too.
