It is intended for those who told me I was wrong when I said there is no scientific evidence that a woman who has never been Dregnsn: can breast-feed a child. You men read- ers out there who have no interea in the subject can E'idp Ann Landers today. Go look at the sporU page. The mail was fascinating. I did no; hear from even one woman who sid she had dene it. I riM hear, however, from dozens of women who said her neighbor had done it. her cousin had done a lady a: La Lw'ne League knew o! sis women who had done it. and one man said his uncle had done it. It is easy to understand why an adoptive mother fervently wish to believe that her own milk is sustaining her chili The psychological as as the physiological benefits c! breast-ieecing are well known. La Leehe League has done t superb job of disseminating information on breast-feeding and is to to commended for the help it has given new mothers.

I noted that of the ten women mentioned by Dr. Newton be did no: personally observe any one of them.'' j Pieaders have sent me cuppings and phonographs 0- adop- tive mothers ''nusing1' their babies.

Attached to the sack is a tube which the mother slips down alongside her breast. The end of the rube goes into the baby's mouth, along with [he mother's breast. This is called ''supplemental feeding." A doctor v hose n.--nie appeared in t'tre article said on the phone. "I personally witnessed s fluid coming out of the adoptive mother's breast." When asked if he was sure it was nilk he repLed. "I haven't gotten around to analyzing it."
