What do you think? Should World Breastfeeding Week focus on formula feeding, too?

"The I Support You movement is a respectful, empathetic, compassionate exchange between parents.  We all feed our children differently, but we are all feeding with love, and in ways that work for our individual circumstances and family dynamics.  I Support You is the first step in helping formula-feeding, breast-feeding, and combo-feeding parents come together and lift each other up with kindness and understanding. We have chosen to announce this movement during World Breastfeeding Week to honor the commitment of those who fight for better support for breastfeeding moms; we are inspired by this, but believe that by changing the focus to supporting all parents, we can truly provoke positive change without putting the needs of some mothers above the needs of others. "

Personally, I think that saying "provoke" instead of "promote" was a Freudian slip. ;)

The Mommy Wars would end if those zealots would just go away.
