What Trump got right on breastfeeding: The administration’s objection to the WHO resolution was sound

Except that whichever team you’re on, the WHO’s resolution, which ultimately passed, is wrong-headed, potentially harmful and in need of serious revision. No meaningful piece of infant feeding advice works for all families everywhere; it is futile to pretend that women in urban Egypt, sub-Saharan Africa, rural Sri Lanka and New York City should all feed their babies the same way. Women and their families in widely varying contexts need to weigh carefully the tradeoffs of breastfeeding or formula feeding, much as they make other critical decisions.
