DT Friday Freakout: Breastfeeding Edition

The Daddy Types Friday Freakout is here/back, a collection of freakout-inducing headlines from the worlds of science, politics and parenting, dumped all at once to ruin just your weekend.

Sometimes the headline doesn't need changing at all:

  • The longer babies breastfeed, the more they achieve in life - major study
    In Brazil, it turns out. Breastfeeding for a year raised IQ 4 points and income $140/mo. [guardian

  • Raising teenagers as protagonists in their own story, not yours, is pretty useful perspective for people who use their kids as brand extensions on their lifestyle blogs. [nyt mag, I know, mea culpa, but I'll have that conversation anytime you're ready]

  • Shaken Baby Syndrome may actually be a theory, not a thing. The Washington Post has published an extensive investigation into the science, medicine, and legal aspects of a diagnosis that basically exists for use in a courtroom. [wash post]

Previously, and because some might wonder how this photo of Uma Thurman became the Daddy Types patron saint of breastfeeding: Hollywood's Most Glamorous Nursing Pads
