Pro-Breastfeeding is Anti-Formula feeding?

This blogger was surprised to find that pro-breastfeeding does not mean anti-formula feeding. She heard one of the founders of Baby Milk Action, Patti Rundall, speak and noted that Lactivists are concerned about all infants whether they are breast or bottle fed.

IME, most Lactivists are concerned primarily with infant well-being. Since infant well-being is influenced by mom's well-being, Lactivists are equally concerned with maternal well-being. It is always encouraging to me when objective writers conclude that Lactivists are well-balanced and thoughtful, rather than the harpies that the main stream media tries to create.
