Despite U.S. Attempts To Water Down Global Breast Feeding Resolution, States Are Actually Making Strides To Protect It

Stateline: The U.S. Targeted Breastfeeding Abroad. Here At Home, It’s Another Story. 

The Trump administration this spring tried to remove pro-breastfeeding language from a World Health Organization resolution. But here at home, breastfeeding has steadily become more accepted and accessible — culminating this year in the 49th and 50th states enacting laws to allow it in public. The World Health Organization resolution stated that breast milk is the healthiest choice for babies and encouraged countries to crack down on misleading claims from purveyors of formula. Attempts by the United States to remove language that called on governments to “protect, promote and support breastfeeding” were unsuccessful, but the move shocked researchers and health advocates who have long contended “breast is best.” (Beitsch, 7/12)
