This is good news. It's healthy (for both mom and baby), natural, and costs a LOT less than formula. The only significant downside to nursing is that it's difficult for working moms to accomplish. Bringing your breast pump into the ladies' room while at work 3x/day is not much fun. (or so my wife told me)
