Quote of the Day

"Formula feeding is the longest lasting uncontrolled experiment lacking informed consent in the history of medicine."

— Frank Oski, MD
retired Editor, Journal of Pediatrics

I found this quote on Dr. Jenny Thomas' website, drjen4kids. Dr. Thomas is a pediatrician and IBCLC who practices in Racine, WI. Her website is chock full of wonderful information on breastfeeding, normal infant behaviors, immunizations and more. She also did a wonderful interview with Tanya at the Motherwear Breastfeeding Blog.

You may have seen this quote elsewhere. I know it has appeared on many websites, including KellyMom & La Leche League, but it was new to me. Dr. Oski's New York Times obit describes him as "[an] expert in childhood... nutritional deficiencies" who "campaigned against commercial promotions of cow's milk as an alternative to mother's milk for babies."
