No lie, I’m pretty sick of this too. Every single research article is “but what about wealth??”.

In the comments below, people keep guessing that maybe it’s because richer people eat better food. Even tho food has NOTHING to do with this topic!!

Like sure, hate the rich all you want, but at this point it’s become an excuse for folks to get out of responsible decision making.

There’s plenty that can be done to improve your life or the life of your child. One example, as implied by this research, is to be out in nature more. Even poor people have access to nature. Stop this ridiculousness folks.

First, it’s not about breastfeeding, it’s about where. Were they breastfed in nature??? That’s literally the point of the research.

Second, of course it’s may. Nothing in life is 100%! Even things we have studied extensively doesn’t guarantee anything. We know excess sugar consumption predominately leads to development of diabetes 2. Does it GUARANTEE diabetes 2? Of course not!! Just like you can also find anecdotes of people who smoked and lived to 90 with no lung cancer. Good for you but those exceptions are meaningless.

You have a yr to try it out. Put it for rent, see how hard or easy it is, while living with your friend for a bit (or even rent an apartment).

Do you make enough to have two mortgages? No.

Do you make enough to have two mortgages while having a steady reliable rental supplement income? Potentially yes but it is risky to you.

Do you make enough if one of you is jobless? Flat out no, TOO much risk then. You need to be dual income or one late rent payment and you are done, on both houses. Neither of you make enough solo.

If the rent really is 2k and your mortgage is 1k, it is a no brainer for keeping the single mortgage tho. Assuming that your renter demand is steady, and you aren’t in a bubble.
