Dr. Guesry: I agree with you that breast-feeding remains the best nourishment for a baby. However, I also agree with you that the study by Sears et al.  from New Zealand is flawed by many aspects, and the data are increasing.

Is that what you are saying? Dr. Vandenplas: That was suggested by the studies that I mentioned.
