Breastfeeding is the natural, normal way for infants to be fed. Mothers should be given accurate information and support regarding breastfeeding after giving birth, and accurate information regarding the risks of artificial feeding.
Today's mothers face a confounding dilemma: breast or bottle? The fact that this is a manufactured choice driven by formula companies is lost on most. Many mothers agree that "breast is best" but happily settle for feeding their babies artificial formula, not realizing that their own milk is not only nutritionally superior to formula but, more importantly, it is what baby's body expects.
I urge you to support the Normalization of Breastfeeding. While breastfeeding is legal in all 50 states, many mothers fear harassment and persecution when breastfeeding in public. Breastfeeding, not bottlefeeding, is normal infant feeding.
