    I wrote a five page persuasive essay about basically this. It was hard because we were told not to cite outside sources. No grade yet. I decided to focus on the value outside of nutrition. It was ok I guess. This professor is very hard all around. I'm not sure I will have an A in the class.

    I was able to see it through until my child walked away on his own. And he is still so proud of himself. And he REMEMBERS nursing. And talks about his weaning party.

    Way too lazy for formula
