And promoting breastfeeding may cause some to make the wrong decision. The risk of people following advice and having it go badly for them is always there. Given the limitations of human beings, its not a solvable problem.

First of all, doctors inform a mother of what is acceptable or not. Secondly, formula feeding should always be seen - as it was when it was invented - as a back up - not the sole way to feed a baby.

Secondly, the Bloomberg initiative in New York is being attacked by right wing tools like the FOX owned NY Post for some right wing small govt reason I can’t fathom. But anyone who argues the quack science that formula feeding is just as good as breast feeding should be confronted.

Baby formulas are loaded up with corn syrup. How about we start Americans without corn syrup in their first months on earth?
