Monday’s Breastfeeding Quote

I have decided that once a week (let’s see how long this will last !), I would post a breastfeeding quote here. Monday seems like a good day for that, as we all need a little boost for the week.

So here is a quote from Gabrielle Palmer, the author of the Politics of Breastfeeding:

If a multinational company developed a product that was a nutritionally balanced and delicious food, a wonder drug that both prevented and treated disease, cost almost nothing to produce and could be delivered in quantities controlled by the consumers’ needs, the very announcement of their find would send their shares rocketing to the top of the stock market.  The scientists who developed the product would win prizes and the wealth and influence of everyone involved would increase dramatically.  Women have been producing such a miraculous substance, breastmilk, since the beginning of human existence.  ~Gabrielle Palmer

This quote gives me the “I make milk, what’s your superpower ?” kinda feeling.
