"With abundant research to back her narrative, journalist Allers, who has two children, shows how and why American women have been made to feel ashamed of breast-feeding...Allers makes the message loud and clear: since breast-feeding provides the most benefits for mother and child, for those who are capable of doing so, it should be the feeding method of choice. Easily digested research and personal stories in support of breast-feeding and its importance to mothers and their children." -Kirkus Reviews
"Formula companies make millions by convincing women they aren’t capable of one of their most basic bodily functions, and have spent millions of marketing dollars aimed at women, doctors, hospitals, scientists and policymakers to hammer this point home for the past century. Allers is...transform[ing] the narrative surrounding breast-feeding into an empowering message." - The Washington Post

She exposes the truth about formula and it's danger, pediatricians and their corruption, and how feminism is so detrimental to our lives as mothers and the health of our children. Very eye opening and I recommend this book to all my fellow birth workers. I am a postpartum care provider and doula, @nourishmentformama. And I will lend this to my clients who are interested as well.
cradle to the grave -- particularly related to breast feeding but beyond that -- it includes how breastfeeding initiatives can change the world.
I enjoyed this book a lot –but it could use another round of copy editing. Lots of typos and long sentences and paragraphs that could be cleaned up.

I would recommend this book for highlighting the criminal behaviour of baby food formula manufacturers in their war against humanity.
