Go to page 62 here and read the article- Mom to Mom The Practical Side of Breastfeeding.
There are a few things I do agree with.
1-see a Lactation Consultant
2-ok maybe just 1
But then she goes on to state, before sex you should pump so your nipples don't leak. That should be interesting. "Hold on honey, I need to go pump these jugs before we do the pants off dance off (as my hubby calls it)" Oh don't forget to wear a sexy bra too, not your nursing bra....lol
And this lady tells you how to put in a nursing pad, really it's not rocket science.
How do you know baby is getting enough milk? well someone that knows anything about breastfeeding would say that 5-6 wet diapers in 24 hours.
How often do they eat?
She says at first 3-4 hours I say more like every 2 hours for newborns.
Now this is a good one- When do I nurse if I have an appointment? I don't get it. Feed your baby before, during, after your appointment.
When do I start bottlefeeding? my answer- don't. BREASTFEED.
What do I wear? she suggest loose fitting clothes so you can nurse discreetly. And she suggest a car would be most ideal. - Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Nurse everywhere. Be proud you are giving your baby the best possible start in life.
I think my 13 year old niece could have wrote this article.
So Atlanta Parent- before you have someone write an article on a subject like breastfeeding might I suggest to you make sure they know a little something about it.
Where are the laws for nursing moms? here
What about the benefits to mom & baby? didn't see
Higher IQ's- Less Ear Infections-Better Immune Systems- more here & here
I probably could go on and on about this all night but I need to go nurse my 9 month old. Yes he still nurses at night. :)

I found a blog I agree with and she wrote about this silly article too-
