There 's a lot of heated debate surrounding the issue of baby formula, with countless parents willing to take one stance or another. While many mothers feel as though breast milk is the ultimate form of nutrition and that baby formula can be harmful, other mothers believe that infants should be introduced to baby formula at the earliest opportunity. So why is there such brouhaha around the issue of using baby formula, and how can you determine if your child is ready to go on it?
Breastfeeding is a naturally occurring event which has been happening for a long time(Bushak). Many women around the world have breastfed their babies without much problems and recently women have been judged by many hypocritical people. This issue has escalated to where mothers are harassed or publicly humiliated. Breastfeeding should be public because women should not be afraid and it is a way of life.
Emily Martin wrote the novel The Woman in the Body to show how women are being degraded to metaphors and that their natural processes are deemed a social process. Women are being placed in a medical community where their best interests are being degraded to medical practices. The mother is being separated from her body and being placed secondary to the deliverance of the baby. The woman is being influenced by technology and society in order to conform to the needs and wants of the doctor through their use of power and authority. Max Weber developed the Theory of Domination, which perfectly exemplifies the influence doctors in the medical community have on women. However, women are slowly coming to the realization that they have alternate options
As every health professional and the World Health Organisation will tell you, the best type of baby milk is breast milk. However, for various reasons, breastfeeding is not always possible. The mother or baby may be ill after the birth, or perhaps the baby had to be in an incubator for a while and could not feed. Maybe the mother didn 't manage to breastfeed, or her work situation didn 't allow it.
Breastfeeding has been the way to feed babies for centuries. Before formula was created breastfeeding was the only option of food for babies. Breast milk is also the healthiest choice for babies. Formula only has a small percentage of nutrients included in breast milk. Formula is made with cow’s milk which is harder for babies to digest and creates digestive health problems. Why is breastfeeding in public such a problem to the nursing mother and those around her? The public expresses how breastfeeding in public is offensive. Some people say how nursing mothers should stop being disgusting, feed their baby in the bathroom, or just stay at home if they are going to breastfeed. These kinds of comments are discouraging to nursing mothers

The United States’ current parental leave policy directly causes health issues in mothers, fathers and newborn children. A paid leave policy would assuage this complication and achieve the U.N sustainable goal of good health and well being. The authors of the Maternal and Child Health journal describe the health benefits of a paid leave policy: “[Studies show that paid family leave] gives children a healthy start, lowers infant mortality by more than 20% (Ruhm 1998)” (Rowe-Finkbeiner, Martin, Abrams, Zuccaro, Dardari 3). Writer Sarah Fass adds that “in terms of children’s health, access to paid parental leave has been found to reduce child mortality, particularly when the leave is paid and provides job- protection benefits” (Fass 1). These
Breastfeeding is a wonder of nature and rightfully women should feel natural about breast feeding their children in public. Mothers most of the time would rather bottle feed their children than breastfeed because of the negative reactions that mothers receive in public for such an innocent act. Even with the fact of knowing that breastfeeding provides many nutritional values, defenses from infections, and benefits to the mother herself, many mothers shy away from the idea. In today’s society the subject of women breastfeeding in public is taboo. Mothers should breastfeed in public because it beneficial to society, the child, and the mother but, many would disagree that breastfeeding in public is too inappropriate.
Breastfeeding is the healthier option although sometimes formula can be. Breast milk contains natural antibodies that cannot be placed in formula. These antibodies help to fight off infections. It also contains the nutrients the baby needs which can prevent obesity, asthma, ear infections, and more. However, if the mother does not eat right formula is better because it is made with the exact amount of nutrients. If the mother does decide to breastfeed, it lowers her changes of ovarian cancer and breast
Breastfeeding has been around forever now, but it’s now not being accepted to be done in public. Women will hear comments like,” could you please cover up,” or ,“ do you really have to do that infront of me?” Women should not have to be judged for something that is natural and healthy. Now, women are starting to fight back towards these comments and won’t stand for what people have to say about them feeding their child. Women should not have to suffer through the harassment of people saying how it’s inappropriate because it is healthy, natural, and legal.
I joined this group very very late , but I just wanna share my experience with you all. It was a C-section and I couldn 't get up from my bed due to intense pain (am super pain sensitive) none of the nurses even attempted to train us to start our breastfeeding journey.. when I asked that my son is not feeding they checked his sugar levels and they were happy with that. as a mom I felt wrong and when my mom tried to make my son latch he was resisting and didn 't cooperate well. so we started to give him formula on day1 which is after 16hrs of birth and he didn 't had anything in between.. at first I was contented that he was not starving but that became a routine to feed formula and we weren 't

Supplying a baby with breast milk is the most natural thing in the world. Ideological discussions are therefore out of place. However, there are good medical and personal reasons for not nursing your child. How do I feed my child during the first months of my life? For thousands of years in all cultures, there was no question that every woman breast-feeds her own child, yet nowadays the feeding of babies has developed in to two different directions, moms who breastfeed and others who bottle feed.
For my first assigned patient, I was unable to watch the birth. However; the nursing staff at SRMC worked very hard to find another individual that wouldn’t mind having a student nurse in the labor and delivery. I was glad, I finally was able to watch a delivery and have a better understanding of the ways the operating room (OR) and OB work together to delivery a baby.
Since the beginning, people viewed women as more suitable for child rearing than fathers. Even now, many people still believe that child rearing responsibilities must fall upon the mother. Fathers, on the other hand, are perceived as bread winners or disciplinarians who attend work and leave the bonding and child rearing to mothers who are more nurturing and patient. Does this mean men can’t possess these qualities and therefore, should not take a more active part in childcare? Furthermore, most companies in the United States do not give paternity leave and as a result, fathers miss out on valuable time during the first few weeks of their baby’s life. Subsequently, this can negatively affect the newborn. The SMU Law Review carried out research
