Thanks to everyone who took the time to leave a comment about the virtures and vices of "nursing noodges." We got more than 100 really passionate comments on that entry.

Coincidently, a study was released a few days later reiterating yet again what we all know, how totally fabulous and great breastfeeding is, and that it would save billions in childhood health care costs if 90 percent of women breastfed their babies exclusively for 6 months.

A few people -- who hadn't liked my position in the first place -- wrote in with undisguised glee.

See! Aren't you really, really sorry you opened your pie hole now?

My answer to them was, nope. I stand by every word.

What do you think? Was this study just adding more fuel to the already raging breastfeeding bonfire? After all this discussion, have you changed YOUR mind? Leave a comment or drop an email at enoonan@globe.com
