The Politics of Breastfeeding
Our members say: "This book opened my eyes to the way our society works. How infant formula came out of a surplus of milk from the industrialisation of the dairy industry and how advertising has played a huge part in it being seen as the norm. It also had an interesting part about natural child spacing in different cultures, where lactation suppresses fertility and how this affects the number of children had in different communites."
Our members say: "A fascinating and very thought-provoking book exploring the many factors that influence breastfeeding beliefs and culture. Easier to read than the original but still in-depth. It may make you angry, but it will help you understand why breastfeeding can be such a difficult and emotive topic. Also looks at the many ways women are not supported to breastfeed, and how companies are profiting from that."
