Breastfed babies cry more, laugh less, and generally have "more challenging temperaments" than formula-fed infants, a study has found. But such behaviour is normal, and mothers should learn to cope with it rather than reach for the bottle, according to researchers. Infant irritability was said to be a natural part of the "dynamic communication" between mothers and babies.
Got milk? No, not the kind you think. In an unusual twist, some men are turning to human milk in a quest to bulk up or improve their health, believing all the benefits it provides to infants can produce similar effects in adults.
Adult nursing — the act of breastfeeding another adult — has been documented for centuries. To modern eyes it all sounds a little bit, well, strange. We generally consider breastfeeding to be restricted to mothers and babies.
The discussions at the World Health Assembly reveal that mothers still lack the support they need to initiate and continue breast-feeding their infants. Breast-feeding provides protection against newborn, infant and child infections, allergies, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease and sudden infant death syndrome.

There are also health benefits for the mother, as it reduces the risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, diabetes, hypertension and heart disease.

My friend Marina attaches the suction cup of the breast pump to her nipple and presses the button. The mechanical noise from the pump mixes with the sounds of advertising executives having lunch. Marina has a two-year-old daughter who's starting to wean, and I've come by her office to have lunch with her and drink some of her breast milk.
Breast milk provides protections against many respiratory diseases, including influenza flu. A mother with suspected or confirmed flu should take all possible precautions to avoid spreading the virus to her infant while continuing to provide breast milk to her infant. Influenza also called flu is an acute respiratory tract illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs, causing a contagious respiratory illness. Flu can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death.
