Re: Breastfeeding Articles in NY Times

I honestly believe that formula should be sold by prescription only. Yes, there are women who can't breastfeed, and once a doctor has determined that a baby would be genuinely better off getting formula, thent he doctor can give the mother access to formula. It would make switching to formula less convenient, more of a hassle, and make the decision one you genuinely think about, instead of just flippantly deciding you don't want to try breastfeeding because you don't think you would like it. Now, I know this isn't really something that's very easy to implement, and it'll probably NEVER work because too many people in the US use formula and they wouldn't vote for it.

I want a blinkie that says "FORMULA * For When Second Rate * Is Good Enough"
