this book is fantastic. A must read for every mom and mom to be who is faced with the choice of infant feeding. Breast or formula.
Rima talks about the development of the formula industry, how doctors colluded with formula companies, formula company mistakes and babies pay the price. This continues today unabated. Formula companies contributed large sums of money to suppress GMO labeling in California, Washington, and other states. What do they have to hide?

Wish I had this when my babies were born!

Muniath
This read like propaganda for makers of formula. Did not contain the latest research on the superior advantages of human milk over formula nor a list of the hundreds of beneficial ingredients found in breastmilk which are protective and give long term health advantages. Needs a serious update. Old school.

Quellik
A fascinating history describing how doctors and businessmen colluded to undermine breastfeeding in the Western world. Would be of interest to midwives, nurses and sociologists. Written by an academic and fully referenced but not a difficult read. In my copy some of the illustrations were so poorly reproduced that the captions had disappeared and the pictures were indistinct.
