This week we celebrate the 25 th annual World Breast Feeding Week. Cheers, I say and milk moustaches all round. Breastfeeding maintains an oddly controversial issue in our society and stories of nursing mothers being thrown off buses, or asked to cover up for daring to air the dairy in public, regularly feature in the media. Reactions to boob food oscillate wildly from milky militants who insist on breastfeeding their children until they are ready to leave for university, and those who view breastfeeding as some form of cannibalism. Despite our enthusiasm for bovine milk, we remain oddly squeamish about ingesting the milk of other animals humans included.
Is this proof the witches of breast milk are wrong after all?
Breastfeeding is for Witches! - Breastfeeding World
Bodily fluids are amazing things to use when it comes to witchcraft. Blood, menstrual blood, saliva, urine, tears: if you are a witch then you've probably used at least one of those for a spell. But what about breast-milk? If you have please link me to the website or the book, because I looked for months and couldn't find anything! If you have any questions or experience to add to it please do not hesitate to post in the comment section!
By Anna White. She claims the "scientific evidence for the health benefits of breast feeding is weak". If this is the case, the witches of breast milk, namely midwives, health visitors and nurses, are piling pressure on new, often vulnerable, mums to breastfeed based on a motherhood myth. Professor Wolf is among a growing body of academics claiming breast feeding has been oversold. We have a cultural obsession with eliminating risk, she says, yet much of the research to support breast feeding is methodically and flawed.
By Anna White. Three years ago I was in the midst of the new-born haze. That bleak phase when life becomes one long feed - which was especially true for me having given birth to premature twins who took a couple of hours to drink their milk.
