This is very true. I'm sure painfully so for those who have struggled and were not met with support. Too many health care providers, as well as the general population, still consider breastfeeding as a personal lifestyle choice instead of the lifelong health issue that it really is. Once upon a time, every human baby thrived on human breastmilk (either natural mother's or another mother's) and now the number of babies receiving any breastmilk at a year is around 10%?!?

It is amazing how different things sound when you flip the norm. I think there would be major backlash if the medical community began telling women "the dangers of formula feeding." And it's just highly unlikely since most doctors think formula is the answer, not a problem.

Yep. :-(. But "the dangers of formula feeding" is actually the accurate statement.
