We all know breastfeeding has a lot of immediate benefits to our babies (and us!) Are there any benefits of breastfeeding that you hope to see in the future, though? Are there are any illnesses or diseases that run in your family that you are hoping to prevent by breastfeeding?

I'd like to see breastfeeding help with my children's health when they are older (adult-age). There's a lot of studies and speculation that breastfeeding helps prevent diabetes, cancer and obesity and I'd love to see my children benefit from breastfeeding by being able to avoid those!
