Breast. No Bottle.

To nurse, or not to nurse: that is not a question!

The inglorious end of the art of breastfeeding

leave a comment »

I accidentally stumbled upon a website called Art of Breastfeeding. The name of the website evokes the memory of the seminal work by La Leche League – The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding. Analysis of the website shows a strong slant for  products and services that focus on pumping  rather than actual breastfeeding. If you look at the placement of products before services as well as breastpump sale information well above on the page than actual breastfeeding consultations, you get the idea what the business’ primary goal is. Featured articles only reinforce the idea behind the business – sale of pumps. Perhaps, the appropriate title of the website would be The art of pumping … gently guiding mothers into pumping.
