Unfortunately, a few mistakes got into the finished copies of the book–something we really tried to guard against, but mistakes do happen. Here are the two we have found so far:
- Catherine D. and Brendan D. listed in the critics panel should read Catherine F. and Brendan F.
- In the introduction, on page 11, we wrote that “trans fat raises low-density lipoproteins in the blood and raises high-density lipoproteins.” In fact, trans fat raises your “bad” (LDL) cholesterol and lowers your “good” (HDL) cholesterol.
- In the baby food chapter, on page 333, we write that “freezing breast milk destroys its nutritious qualities.” As Angie and Heather have noted below, we are mistaken in saying that its nutritive properties are eradicated. What we should have written is that some studies have shown that freezing can REDUCE nutrients, so if you do freeze breast milk, please ensure you store properly, write the date on the bag, and don’t freeze for more than a few months. We apologize for the misleading information.
