The Atlantic's Boob of an Anti-Breastfeeding Expose


Young parents out there might be intrigued by The Atlantic's shock-worthy headline to Hanah Rosin's latest piece: The Case Against Breast-Feeding.

But Rosin hardly delivers on that premise in her decidedly ambivalent essay. Her bottom line:

So overall, yes, breast is probably best. But not so much better that formula deserves the label of 'public health menace,' alongside smoking.

Um. Yeah. Well. Duh....

And don't even get me started about the deck to the headline, which suggests breastfeeding is "this generation's vacuum cleaner—an instrument of misery that mostly just keeps women down."
