1. The title of your post is really unacceptable...why do you distort the whole point of

your thread with a cheap comment?

Appallingly juvenile...

3. good lord, he is mayor of the "largest and most influential city in the world."

this is a matter of public health. Didn't you watch/listen to his remarks about the bettering of the health of NYC people over the rest of the country? Isn't a mayor supposed to be concerned about his/her city's health?

Oh, and btw, what is so damn "juvenile" about real world concerns for maternal and child health?

Appalled, again...

4. OMG, I think NYC needs a change and Weiner is your man ....

The idea of breastfeeding being better for the baby has been known for at least as long as since the beginning of mankind .... in other words, this is not a new concept ....

6. Is he reinforcing a Columbia University health study of some sort?

I ask because of the backdrop...
As a former Nursing Mother (it's an organization, actually) ) I'm glad to see such a high profile figure endorse breast feeding.
I was a "coach" for fellow nursing moms for a while, back in the Middle Ages. I'm very glad that my life circumstances allowed me to take the extra time required to nurse my babies.
On the other hand, I feel that women get an enormous amount of criticism from all sides in every aspect of their lives, and I hate to think that any woman these days whose life is already full of demands--working full time, etc.-- should feel guilty because she elects to bottle feed.
I was a bottle fed baby and I'm still in great health.
Blessings to my sisters.....

8. Bloomberg is exactly right. The purpose of "free" formula in hospitals is to get women to dry up.

 

I've boycotted Nestle for over 25 years now because of their "Nurse Maids" in Africa. They sent in sales reps dressed as doctors and nurses to convince women that their formula was superior to breast milk, gave them free samples, and after their breasts dried up they were stuck buying formula. Since it's fucking expensive in most of the places they targeted, they watered it down to stretch it out. Often times the water was so polluted and the concentration of formula so week that the infants died. Nestle has blood on its hands and Bloomberg seems to understand that.

Now agreed, some women can't breast feed either because they don't produce or the infant won't latch on. Yes, there are valid reasons to use formula. But pushing it like a crack dealer is what the formula companies are doing and it's not healthy for the children. A doctor will know if a woman needs formula. That's a medical professional's call, not a sales rep's.

And yes, the OP title is inappropriate, but the clip is good and spot on.

9. My two children were formula fed and I chose that.

They are now adults and healthy and no worse for the wear by being bottle-fed. FU, Mr. Bloomberg.

10. Well, that FU is certainly harsh. He is only suggesting with his policy.

Look I had to go to formula with my first after I failed at breastfeeding, so did my two daughters. But I had success with my 2nd and 3rd babies.

My son, the first born, is no worse off from being bottle fed. It was just one of those things. I tried and it didn't work out. He's great!

What's the big deal?

11. "What's the big deal?"

 

I don't get why humans act like they aren't mammals. If you were told to make sure puppies are weaned to make sure they got the antibodies from the mother people would say it makes sense, but with humans it's like we want to put em on a bottle ASAP.

Mother's milk is best for the infant.

Plus,...it's kinda handy if your coffee is a little dark.

13. Well, I tried and tried and it wasn't easy for me to have to go to formula with my firstborn.

That's really an unfair slam against mothers who try as hard as they can and still have to resort to formula. They go through a lot of grief and I must this attitude doesn't show any respect for their situations.

15. Humans have had this issue from the begining of history.

 

That was why there were wet nurses. It was common for women to not produce enough milk long before "formula".

17. The hormones released during pregnancy didn't fully activate milk production the 1st time.

18. well, that was some time ago. I am wondering if there are ways to fully activate milk

production now or whether it will always be thus...

19. They've been doing the hormone thing with cattle for years...

 

They could do it with humans too, but it would get kind of boring to be hooked up to a milking machine.

20. I always wondered how long cows can continue to give milk before they must have a rest

and then be re-inseminated for another pregnancy...

It doesn't keep me up at night but just askin'...

....falling asleep during insemination could be a bigger problem.
