The lack of breastfeeding in America has turned in to a public health crisis. The rising statistics of childhood illnesses preventable by the act of breastfeeding are staggering as is the price tag of healthcare that goes along with it. Infant Formula or Artificial Baby Milk is a relatively new invention, originally intended for babies who could not breastfeed or mothers who did not have any milk and donor human milk is not available. Why than, are we ignoring our natural biological function of breastfeeding almost completely? Why are doctors, who more often than not agree that breastmilk is far superior to infant formula, so quick to prescribe it when a mother experiences difficulty in breastfeeding? Why do we continue to sexualize the breast and stigmatize what it is actually intended for? Why aren't there more widely available human milk banks where a mother can go to get that precious liquid gold for her baby if she cannot provide instead of free cans of formula in our mailboxes? If infant feeding is a choice, why aren't we making an informed one? This documentary will provide an insightful look in to our culture's attitude towards the breastfeeding mother and it's acceptance of infant formula. With change we can be come a Breastfeeding America.
