Wordless Wednesday: Don't Kill Your Baby

Every time an article comes out referencing a study that proves how breastfeeding benefits moms and babies, moms come out of the woodwork to talk about how the article is picking on moms who feed formula. Then we hear a lot about how moms shouldn't be made to feel guilty. Thank goodness it's not 1910 and we don't all live in Chicago! This is an ad created by the Chicago Health Department that year titled "Don't Kill Your Baby!"

Now of course the ad is aimed at preventing moms from giving their babies things like beer, coffee and candy (was this a big problem at the turn of the century?) I love the inaccurate information in the ad, but at least they got one thing right: Mother's milk is best of all.
