I read this interesting article that says breastfeeding doesn't actually increase your baby's IQ; breastfed babies are smarter because mothers who choose to breastfeed are generally more intelligent and provide a good learning environment for their child. That's interesting. It still sounds kind of like a chicken and egg thing to me.

I do know, though, that it burns 200-500 calories per day, and it's easier than going to the gym, so I'm still a fan.

Wow, I agree with the Scottish dudes - it's weird that intelligence of the mom hadn't been a factor before.

Yeah, it does burn a lot of calories. The downside is you are starving all the time, or at least I was, so the process cancels itself out. I just mean, I didn't lose weight through breast feeding! Alas.
