This researcher was interviewed on radio thismorning, she said that they support women in their decision on how to feed their baby....
So why do they want to make women go to the doctor to be prescribed baby food?
That's just an expansion of the guilt that is placed on mothers to breastfeed their babies.
I had a friend who tried for two months to breast feed her son. He lost so much weight that he looked like a baby from a "Save the Children Fund" advert, you know the ones using the images of the starving babies in a famine ravaged third world country. He had no fat on him at all.
She was traumatised by guilt and feelings of inadequacy - she was breast feeding him, but he wasn't gaining weight. I'll bet his alarming weight loss wasn't considered by those who advised her to "persist".
