The Brooklyn Public Library transferred a guard who chastised a mom for breastfeeding. See the story in the New York Daily News.

A study from Denmark
found that early pacifier use can lead to shorter duration of breastfeeding. This confirms something we’ve heard before. So if you want to use a pacifier, wait until the baby is at least 3 to 4 weeks old and breastfeeding is well-established. One benefit of pacifiers… they can decrease the risk of SIDS.

A new study found
that hospital practices can influence whether moms will breastfeed, and how long they’ll do so. See the storyin U.S. News & World Report. Moms who gave birth in hospitals that offered supplementation of formula or water were less likely to achieve their breastfeeding goals.
