Uninformed about breastfeeding
by Bunny Divine

Your article on baby formula was interesting but uninformed.
Women choose to breastfeed because it is normal nutrition for
a normal baby. Infant formula is not a good substitute
for human milk. Giving babies substandard nutrition will
not help bring poor countries out of poverty. The WHO's
viewpoint on infant formula is not out of line. They are
also backed up by the AAP in the states. Can the AAP have
a "secret agenda" too? They both want to see
human babies getting human milk. Infant formula is not
the way to liberate women. On the contrary it takes away
some of the amazing power that a woman's body is blessed with.
A real woman can see the power in her breasts and can feed her
baby without having to give up all other aspects of her life.
Many women work and breastfeed. Many women don't find breastfeeding
to be a burden. We don't need or deserve to use infant
formula. Breastfeeding is easy, practical, and normal.
Infant formula is costly, impractical, and not as good.
I really don't see why any normal healthy woman would want to
for Congress to get serious about WHO's excesses by James
