Let me preface this that YES I know that being a parent is hard and difficult and hard to maneuver. Women need SUPPORT in breastfeeding. This post is NOT about moms who either cannot breastfeed due to a medical reason or choose not to breastfeed, this is about the formula companies and how they have manipulated the lives of many… all in the name of marketing.
So please, take a look at this Business Insider article. Read through and understand how the baby food industry is tainted. Business Insider.
If you are pregnant, consider finding a La Leche League and join a mom’s group that has active breastfeeding support – MOMS need support- it can’t be done alone. Parenting is difficult, if a woman has a goal to breastfeed for 6 months, a conglomerate with billions in marketing dollars shouldn’t be the cause for her to miss her targets, right?
