Letter : Off the breast

From Ms Sue Clasen

Sir: Any mother who wishes to breastfeed (Letters, 3 March) knows that, just when the nutritional advantages are becoming clear, financial and social pressures may force her to transfer to bottle-feeding in order to return to the workplace.

Government policies fail to support mothers who would like to stay longer than 18 weeks with their babies, so the next generation is likely to continue to be denied the breast/best form of nutrition.

Yours sincerely,


What About The Children?
