Breastfeeding News: Milk Banks v Milk Swaps? the debate continues…

There’s been a lot of talk recently about milk sharing – through websites or Human Milk Banks, and Time has put together this article about Milk Banks vs. Milk Swaps, which offers a pretty good view on both sides.

In other news, long time breastfeeding support, Michael Latham, died at age 82 on April 1st.  He was vital in bringing  issues of the dangers of infant formula marketing in the developing world to the public stage, in raising awareness of the importance of childhood nutrition, and in starting organizations such as the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action . His activism and insights will be missed.
