Breast Feeding Still the Better OptionNew report shows benefits of breast feeding compared to risks
New studies have shown that, despite concerns over toxins found in breast milk, breast feeding is still the best option.
The initial concerns arose over the issue of toxic chemicals in the environment finding their way into the food chain, and therefore ending up in breast milk. One of the toxins is PVC, which is present in many plastic items such as food packaging and toys. When the plastic is no longer needed, it\'s thrown away and often ends up in incinerators. The PVC undergoes chemical transformation, and highly toxic chemicals called dioxins are released into the atmosphere. The dioxins attach themselves to water particles which in turn end up in the foodchain.
The dioxins are mostly found in food with a high fat content such as meat and dairy products, and the higher up the food chain you are, the higher the level of dioxins you are exposed to, which leaves humans pretty much at the top of the list.
This is why there is so much concern over toxins being present in breast milk, being passed on to babies. These concerns are still valid, but the new studies highlight the fact that breast feeding is far superior in terms of benefits for your baby i.e. the benefits outweigh the risks.
Researchers reviewed data from three studies, among them a Dutch study of 418 infants and mothers, half of whom breast-fed and half of whom used formula; a smaller Dutch study of 38 mothers that assessed the impact of different levels of dioxin exposure; and a German study of 232 mothers and babies who had been exposed to dioxin before birth.
The point is that breast milk has far more benefits than risks- so, if you can, stick to feeding your baby this way.

Cuski Helps With Colic Too...
Before my 1st baby, Poppy, was born I went to a baby show in London and bought a baby comforter called Cuski. At the time didnt think too much of it really, it got washed and put in my hospital bag. Where it stayed for ages... Waiting for -Beanie- to be born.Once Poppy was born she was given Cuski and seemed to like it. Pops was about 3 weeks old when the colic kicked in. She would cry from about 7.30pm until 1am... It was awful. This is when I really began to understand the value of a Cuski. My scent clung to it and this comforted Poppy. This meant that someone other than me could hold her...
Anyway, Poppy is now 2 1/2 and still loves her Cuski. Her 10 month old Sister, Daisy went through the same colic problems and Cuski helped her too.
Both girls are comforted by their Cuskis, if they grizzle in the night I just pop into their room and put their arms around Cuski and leave them be, Cuski settles them right back to sleep...
