    This is good news, as I’m planning to breastfeed my future kids. For many reasons, but this is certainly one of them.

    Oddly enough, though: I’m one of three children and I am the only type 1 diabetic. I was the only one who was breastfed, too.

    There I go, breaking the mold again. ;)

    I breast fed my second child for a little over a year so good news for me!

    I learned a lot about being a Type 1 diabetic and breast feeding from Nicole Johnson at a chat that Gina Capone hosted. There are some things to be careful about too (like making sure your blood sugar isn’t high during nursing) but all in all… this is good to hear, for both baby and mommy!

    I wonder if the results apply to exclusive pumpers? Any idea?

    Breastfeeding is unquestionably best for babies but I find it absolutely disgusting. I cannot stand it when women breastfeed around other people. I could not bring myself to do it, but since I’m adopting my children (the last thing I want is a type 1 diabetic child) I will thankfully bypass the whole issue.

    me and my girlfriend have recently had a baby. She found it very stressfull to brest feed so has opted not to do it now. There are many pluses for breast feeding, including the one in your post. Great post by the way.
