Are you listening?

Yep. The lady from the off-puttingly titled Breastfeeding Manifesto Coalition was very good. Nice and balanced and unjudjmental.

Yep, can't believe half an hour is being given over to this. The assistant was wrong to say what she did, end of. Not the basis for a prime time radio discussion.

Agreed turnip, she came across very well, better than JV expected I think

I think JV was hoping she would be horrible and militant.

OOOh "Formulafed babies are NEVER as healthy as breastfed babies".

Hmmm - we know all the studies but I don't think that is exactly how we would put the results. Know what she is trying to say.

I heard that and thought 'mumsnet', let's see what's being said...

I wonder if they'd give me half an hour of air time every time someone tells me that I should put my baby on the bottle?

No, probably not.

Good adverts for SMA by the way!
