  1. I loved the article on breastfeeding in Mongolia. Here in Canada, all I ever hear is complaints about "breastfeeding Nazis" and that many women just find breastfeeding physically impossible.

    On an individual level, I can understand problems with latching and milk production, but I can't help feeling that there's a strong cultural element at play here too. Do as many Mongolian women have trouble breastfeeding as Canadian women? I think not.
