This post is going to do two things. First, I am going to tell you why I think breastfeeding (especially, “extended” breastfeeding) is a perfect match with the paleo lifestyle, both from the perspective of the baby’s health and the mom’s. Then, I am going to provide a fairly extensive series of links so that you can look into this further, especially if you want to see lots of references for the claims in the first part.
First, let me say that I know that not all mothers are able to breastfeed. If a mom *cannot* breastfeed, then I am so happy that we have formula so that her baby can continue to thrive. I would suggest that anyone who might need formula and is into paleo eating look at the formula recipes from the Weston A. Price Foundation: http://www.westonaprice.org/Recipes-for-Homemade-Baby-Formula.html. I do not endorse
