Baby Express

A newborn baby has only three demands.  They are warmth in the arms of its mother, food from her breasts, and security in the knowledge of her presence.  Breastfeeding satisfies all three.  ~Grantly Dick-Read

 

Breastfeeding is a mother's gift to herself, her baby and the earth.  ~Pamela K. Wiggins



If a multinational company developed a product that was a nutritionally balanced and delicious food, a wonder drug that both prevented and treated disease, cost almost nothing to produce and could be delivered in quantities controlled by the consumers' needs, the very announcement of their find would send their shares rocketing to the top of the stock market. The scientists who developed the product would win prizes and the wealth and influence of everyone involved would increase dramatically. Women have been producing such a miraculous substance, breastmilk, since the beginning of human existence...

-- Gabrielle Palmer, in The Politics of Breastfeeding, London: Pandora Press, 1988, page 1

People need to understand that when they're deciding between breastmilk and formula, they're not deciding between Coke and Pepsi...They're choosing between a live, pure substance and a dead substance made with the cheapest oils available."

There are three reasons for breast-feeding:  the milk is always at the right temperature; it comes in attractive containers; and the cat can't get it.  ~Irena Chalmers

 

 

Breastfeeding is nature's health plan.  ~Author Unknown

 

 

Mother's milk, time-tested for millions of years, is the best nutrient for babies because it is nature's perfect food.  ~Robert S. Mendelsohn
 

 

 

The moment she had laid the child to the breast both became perfectly calm.  ~Isak Dinesen

 

 

When we trust the makers of baby formula more than we do our own ability to nourish our babies, we lose a chance to claim an aspect of our power as women.  Thinking that baby formula is as good as breast milk is believing that thirty years of technology is superior to three million years of nature's evolution.  Countless women have regained trust in their bodies through nursing their children, even if they weren't sure at first that they could do it.  It is an act of female power, and I think of it as feminism in its purest form.  ~Christine Northrup
 

 

 

Ah, the joy of suckling!  She lovingly watched the fishlike motions of the toothless mouth and she imagined that with her milk there flowed into her little son her deepest thoughts, concepts, and dreams.  ~Milan Kundera
