Via Women Hold Up Half The Sky

When we trust the makers of baby formula more than we do our own ability to nourish our babies, we lose a chance to claim an aspect of our power as women.  Thinking that baby formula is as good as breast milk is believing that thirty years of technology is superior to three million years of nature’s evolution.  Countless women have regained trust in their bodies through nursing their children, even if they weren’t sure at first that they could do it.  It is an act of female power, and I think of it as feminism in its purest form.
