A change in diet

While perusing the NY Times this morning on the way into Gotham, I noticed an article in the Science Times discussing the benefits of breast feeding. Among the many, many benefits is that breast fed babies are less likely to be obese later in life. I gather that these babies develop a better on/off mechanism in terms of full/not full.

Is it just me or do you also see a new diet craze sweeping the covers of next month's men's magazines? Straight from the tap, my man.

Nah, But I can see men using as an excuse for spending more time concentrating on the mammaries.

"But honey, I am only doing it to try and stay in shape for you."

Not me, but thanks anyhoo.

I, like many other first time fathers I suspect, tried a bit of the Chesticle Juice the missus had pumped and that stuff's just nasty.

Maybe it's an acquired taste. I've heard lots of people say beer is an acquired taste. Me I can't remember disliking beer, breast-milk didn't get a second chance.

I'm laughing at Phin. Good Lord.

I'll tell you I breastfed three babies and I couldn't get my husband to take a swig to save my life. He was completely skeeved out by it.

So I don't see a trend starting... not here anyway. He had three tries and said NOPE to all three. ;-) And he even KNEW the brewmeister!

When I was a freshman in college, my biology professor stated that breast feeding had three distinct advantages to bottle feeding.

1. The milk was better for the infant than formula.
2. The act of breast feeding strengthened the bond between mother and child.
3. Breast milk comes in such cute little packages.

You could have heard a pin drop when he said Number 3. Well, you could have heard it drop once I stopped laughing. Maybe that's why it was a dry year in terms of the number of dates I had...or didn't have.

Oh gross.

Well, except for the "cute little packages" line up there. ;-)
