Double UGH!

I am a lactivist. I think everyone should breastfeed. I see no reason why mothers shouldn't - truly. I know there are a VERY small few who medically cannot, but that number is not significant. The majority of women CAN breastfeed. They choose not to breastfeed or they are not provided with support to be successful at breastfeeding. It is appalling to me that U.S. hospitals can score a failing grade for breastfeeding. It doesn't surprise me as I hear of mothers pressured to give formula, told to only feed on a schedule and given samples of formula.

Appalling.
