This is really interesting...and I love this woman's blog.

http://www.phdinparenting.com/2008/09/19/lactivism-and-the-homelessness-problem/

Here she examines possible correlation between poverty level and breastfeeding...

I have to say, whether I always agree with her or not, I love this woman's blog. (I know, I already said that. But I do.)

She makes some incredibly good points about why economic situations impact breastfeeding and why it's important to address those situations.

You might enjoy this article as well: http://www.womensenews.org/article.cfm/dyn/aid/3673/ . I think I first found it via Racialicious.

That's really interesting, thanks. The point about WIC made in the comments is something I've heard before too. My partner is American and his daughter from a previous relationship just had a baby in CA. She's 18, poor and has gone straight onto formula! I had no idea this was even likely (every Aussie Mum I know breastfeeds) so by the time I realised, it was too late to talk to her about it. Sad...

Coincidentally, I'm feeding my bub as I type this one-handed... grin!
