Always interesting when it's the doctors who come up with this stuff as their opinions have a lot of clout (which is why those who undermine BFing are so dangerous)

"If all UK infants were exclusively breastfed for six months, admissions to hospital due to diarrhoea would be halved and those due to respiratory infections would fall by a quarter."

Wow, this is the stuff they need to put on those breastfeeding posters
