Politics of Breastfeeding: Alternative Milks and Ulterior Motives for Physicians


The origins, evolution, and impact of the formula milk industry

Price: $24.00 USD

Nekisha Killings, MPH, IBCLC, lactation equity subject matter expert, describes the history of the infant formula industry this way: It’s complicated.

But one thing it’s not, in this course, is boring.

You do not want to miss Killings’s riveting retelling of this story, as she presents a moment-by-historical-moment timeline of the key cultural, media, scientific, and legislative events in a story that’s still in progress—a story with critical implications for you as a lactation care provider and for the families you serve.

From the earliest known accounts of how babies were fed when their parent could not provide human milk, drawn from ancient art, to a description of the formula milk industry’s predatory exploitation of today’s cutting-edge digital technology, you will come away with a full, new understanding of the origins and evolution of the baby milk industry, and more importantly, of the unseen forces families around the globe face when deciding how to feed their babies.
