If they really want to encourage breastfeeding they should offer education and support to mothers and healthcare providers (I'm not sure what the required bf education is for healthcare providers, but I have been appalled at a lot of the ridiculous advice I hear second hand straight from the doctor's mouth)

If those hurdles can be removed for new moms that have no support and don't know what they're doing it would be a great deal better than forcing them into a situation that they may not be okay with and may not be safe.

Wow. There's so much wrong with that I don't even know where to start. What kind of screwed up brain did that idea ever come from..

Ditto Breathing for two, the problem isn't that formula is too accessible, but that women walk into breastfeeding blind. In an effort to promote breastfeeding, professionals make it seem easy without truly educating women about how it works. So, there is an element of guilt when a woman can't do it since "breast is best".

This is no way to promote breast feeding AT ALL. And not to mention, even when I did BF Drake I still used the bottle so Daddy could do some feedings. Bottles are used whether you BF or not. I do not agree with this at all. Well ladies, hang on to your bottles! But honestly, I feel like this would never happen.
