Infants breastfed for at least six months scored higher on math, reading, and spelling by age ten then children who were breastfed for less than six months.

Mom to Freeze Own Eggs so Toddler can Create Family
25-year old English mother intends to freeze her own eggs so that her two-year old daughter, born without ovaries, can one day start a family.  Her daughter has Turner Syndrome, which effects one in every 2,000 girls.

Real, Practice Babies
The novel, The Irresistible Henry House , by Lisa Grunwald,  depicts a time when babies in US orphanages were taken to colleges where they were used as practice babies.  They were typically kept for two years and in that time; women students in Home Economics classes used the infants to learn the science of mothering. After an average of two years the children were returned to the orphanages and were usually adopted quickly by parents who appreciated their scientific upbringing.
