In a 1999 article in Demography, Roe et al. demonstrated a positive correlation between parental leave and duration of breastfeeding.
So far, three states have instituted a paid parental leave policy. D.C.’s program would be the … Keep Reading!!!

Here’s another tear-jerker commercial. ( Those advertisers are getting pretty damn clever.)
Watch as these children are blindfolded and asked to pick out their mothers in a line-up using just touch and smell.
