A beautiful controversary on breast feeding

THE PROBLEM WITH BREASTFEEDING
The Breast Way's interview with James Akre.

Read a perspective that will take you deeper than the jingle. A symphony beyond our time, but one that will be playing soon upon the hearts of mothers and the lips of babes:

"Removing this inert pediatric fast-food from the kitchen pantry and returning it to where it got its start – in the medicine cabinet for emergency use only – requires a society-wide shift in popular, health-professional and political thinking. Deconstructing infant formula is one of the most important tasks at hand. "

and
Q. Okay, breast is normal. But surely infant formula is second-best isn’t it?
A. No, the second-best feeding option is obviously other breast milk, for example expressed milk from a child’s own mother or milk from another mother in good health, whether directly from the breast or a human-milk bank.

There's lots more!
