Breastfeeding is now Deductible !

I read today that:

"In a surprising move, the IRS announced February 10 that it now believes that money spent on breast pumps and breast-feeding supplies qualifies as a medical expense under section 213(d) and is eligible for the itemized medical expense deduction or reimbursable through tax-favored health flexible spending accounts (FSAs)."

Now for the disclaimer .... the IRS statement does not indicate whether the ruling is retroactive [for last year, 2010] or not. And this is just something I read, not advise from Dale.
