ANOTHER REASON TO GIVE BREASTFEEDING A TRY: A recent French study indicates that breastfeeding appears to reduce an infant's pain during some procedures and actually makes it possible for some babies to ignore painful procedures all together. Of course, my daughter was so incensed after her first shot last month that she couldn't latch back on because she was screaming too loudly, so it doesn't always work. Still -- chalk this up as another plus for the nipple nazi cause.
