Hanna Rosin's Case Against Breastfeeding brought back some rather unpleasant memories of M's struggles with K1. We did not go to formula until it was clear that K1 was not getting enough milk in large part because of the propaganda of the breast feeding fascists. The face of the fascist is still clear to me: When told that we could not get enough milk, there was a slight smile on her face which read that we were not doing it right.

This was one aspect of breastfeeding that I wished she had covered - do all mothers universally produce enough milk for their babies?
