The role of infant formula companies in World Breastfeeding Week – what they should do and what they actually do

Every day I hear stories where mothers have been advised to stop breastfeeding in order to take medication, without considering the risk to mum and baby of interupting breastfeeding even temporarily. Formula milk is not the same as breastmilk and never will be. Not all babies will drink from bottles. Not all mothers can express. Not all babies will go back to the breast. Not all mothers can maintain their supply. Medication should not be a reason to stop breastfeeding without looking at evidence based sources on safety, taking professinal responsibilty and last but not least involving the mother in making an informed decision
