Well....breastfeeding is under attack yet again. Check out this article at http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/health/article6169478.ece . The article talks about the drug cabergoline, which is used to suppress hyperprolactinemia. Prolactin is the horomone responsible for breastmild production. Apparentlyit is being given to suppress milk in postpartum moms because they don't want to breastfeed. There's a lot of shock over the use of this drug for this reason. But it seems like it's more about breast vs. bottle. There's talk about the breastfeeding police...I have not seen any such thing where I am! In fact we have to fight to breastfeed around here!
The other thing that really p*sses me off is the comments about breasts being for sex, not breastfeeding. Hmmm...One could say the same about vaginas also. We use those for sex, and we birth babies through them (hopefully). And unfortunately the arguement for elective c/s to protect the vajay-jay is already swirling around!
Let me know what you think!
