Anti-breastfeeding article causes outrage

28th June 2010

An article in Mother & Baby which described breastfeeding as "creepy" has provoked a flurry of complaints and has prompted a report to the Press Complaints Commission.

Miranda Levy, editor of Mother & Baby, defended the author: "This was her personal experience, and certainly has a place in the ongoing parenting debate... We have made readers feel 'normal' and less of a 'failure' for [not] managing to breastfeed – a situation which is incredibly common."
