Re: Is it true that BF babies have a "weaker" gut?
Whenever a medical professional tells me something I'm dubious about... like BF babies having a weaker gut... I say "Show me the research!" Often I have found its just personal opinion, not medical "fact". (I like "Google Scholar" to find or not find about about what have been published in researcher journals).

Son #2 Born Fall 2009 (EBF thanks to LLL!!!)
Be the change you wish to see in the world!
