The Politics of Breastfeeding, first published in 1988, remains a hugely important book. It exposes infant feeding as one of the most important global public health issues of our time, and describes how big business and vested interests influence the intimate relationship between mothers and their babies to the detriment of all, rich or poor, in the West or in the developing world. In Why the Politics of Breastfeeding Matter, the central ideas of The Politics of Breastfeeding are distilled into a concise form, making it the perfect introduction to understanding the complex forces that govern what many think of as a simple choice to breastfeed or not.

B Martin on 13th Jan 2020

Loving this compact history of formula and feeding. A very informative read.

This book opened up a time line of events from the past that give us our preconceived ideas about breastfeeding. Everyone one should read this from mums to be and who already are to grandparents. Very insightful.
