Private Breastfeeding Advocacy discussion area. The Advocacy topic is for Counsellors, Trainees, CE's and members of the Advocacy WG to discuss issues relating to Breastfeeding Advocacy, such as purpose, strategy, techniques, etc. Constructive debate is encouraged, but arguments about the relative merits of Breastmilk and ABM or breastfeeding and bottlefeeding will not be tolerated. The Australian Breastfeeding Association strives to educate the community about the importance of human milk and support all mothers in their feeding choices.

Heard about the federal government's plans to force cig companies to package plainly and thought, we should lobby for that for ABM. It'd separate the subliminal toddler milk advertising from the infant formulas a bit.
I suppose we should wait until the gov has won their case against the cig companies, though... a few years away, I guess, but maybe we should start planting seeds of the idea in policy-makers' minds...
