The article focuses on the advantages of breast feeding one's baby physically and environmentally. Breasfeeding means more fewer bottles and formula cans to produce, ship and dispose of. In addition, a mother's milk also means fewer infections and allergies for the little babies and a lower risk of asthma. Considering the benefits, many American women are nursing today than 15 years ago. In order to master this skill, mothers should plan ahead and observe another mother nurse.
