Re: Subject: RE: [IP] DM testing in Florida



Oh Jennifer  I desperately needed to hear that as I did NOT breasfeed either
of my kids.  All the talk about cows milk has made me feel soooo guilty!  I
didn't give them cow's milk until they were 12 months old..according to our
pediatrican's advice.  I have a good friend that also breastfed her child
who has diabetes now.
She breastfed that daughter longer than the other kids who do NOT have
diabetes.
