Breastfeeding Today

Current issues with promoting breastfeeding:

– not enough paid maternity leave

– social stigma/harassment

– possibility of arrest

– constant need therefore very tiring for mother

– baby should be breastfeed until 6 months old but that doesn’t usually happen because its difficult to balance work and the baby’s need

So what does this mean for the future:

– rise in wet nurses (increased practice now and historical practice)

-rise in buying milk

– rise in regulation (negative towards breast feeding)

What I could do:

– create a future where wet nurses are more acceptable and map out their career

– create a future where wet nurses and buying milk is common place and focus on what supports those systems (food, products, etc)

– create a future where buying milk is typical and done in store
