Breast-feeding facing unwarranted cultural pressure | Opinion 

As an advocate, scholar, and, well, a human, I've been following recent stories on breast-feeding - national coverage of the U.S. delegation's appalling failure to support the World Health Assembly breast-feeding resolution and, more recently, news about the criticism of breast-feeding at a Mora, Minn., kiddie pool. While the two issues may appear to be only tangentially related, in fact they stem from the same cultural resistance that inhibits the achievement of national breast-feeding objectives and individual breast-feeding goals.

Breast-feeding is under unwarranted cultural pressure 

Breast-feeding has been in the news, both globally, with a World Health Assembly resolution calling for support of the practice, and in Minnesota, where public breast-feeding at a pool in Mora created a stir. The U.S. balked at the health assembly resolution when it was taken up in Geneva in the spring, but a slightly modified version ultimately was approved.
