The research is there.  Information on the benefits of breastfeeding to mother and baby is in mainstream parenting magazines. You can easily find this information  in many books on the shelves at your local library and book store.  Many of the national and international organizations that educate and support mothers who breastfeed, are saying that the decision to breastfeed is not only an educational one but an emotional decision as well.  I came across this new list that shares 100 awesome things about breastfeeding that you don’t find in studies.  I did not write this list, however, it is so good that I thought I would share it with my readers.
