At the risk of being reminded why I should sacrifice everything (like silly work aspirations, sleep, or my lady parts) for the good of a child who will perish of neglect otherwise:
Poor, cyberbeaten Hanna Rosin, obviously learning no lessons from her Atlantic article, highlights a new study indicating that breastfeeding does have economic consequences on women. And they ain't so great!
Judging by the post (and lazily only from that, not the study), the study subtly highlights the class differences in breastfeeding as well.
Importantly, Rosin notes that breastfeeding should lose its free pass into the feminist cause. I read something yesterday that questioned its seat in the feminist world as well (can't find the link) because La Leche rose around the time that women were being urged back to the home because they were emasculating their poor men. If you make a time line, I don't think the movements' accomplishments - feminist and breastfeeding - would chart the same.
