I was only breastfed for a few weeks while my brother was throughout and it is I who have the IBD-- it makes alot of sense that the colon's immune system would be "primed" critically early on. But that is a long time ago and of course the medical reasons a mother may have stopped breast feeding then would not have been known to have risks at that time. Wish I could send a message back in time to beg mom to breast feed me longer, and failing that, have had my appendix removed pre-emptively, lol (appendix removal is a very protective factor against ever getting UC).
