What’s wrong with baby formula? It’s not even recommended in disasters

Ecuador, for example, withdrew its sponsorship for the project after the United States threatened to punish the country with harsh trade measures and retract military aid funding for backing the measure.

Officials from the US, Uruguay, and Mexico said that at least a dozen other countries-many of which are poor countries in Africa and Latin America-dropped the resolution after the US sucked away their interest. The US delegates took issue with the nature of the recommendation, and threatened Ecuador with trade measures and the withdrawal of aid if the resolution was not amended.

But U.S. officials tried to remove language from the resolution that called on governments to "protect, promote and support breastfeeding", according to reporter Andrew Jacobs.

Trump has reportedly demonstrated his disgust for breastfeeding-or even the specter of breastfeeding-before: A lawyer said Trump had an "absolute meltdown" when she requested a break to pump breast milk and called her disgusting.

The State Department declined to comment.

"Many women are not able to breastfeed for a variety of reasons, these women should not be stigmatised; they should be equally supported with information and access to alternatives for the health of themselves and their babies". Breast milk is easy to digest, with just the right amount of fat, sugar, water, and protein for a baby's growth and development.

For instance, "mothers who must return to work shortly postpartum face enormous challenges in establishing lactation and continuing to breastfeed as recommended", she said.

Lactation is tricky terrain, particularly for women in the workplace, who must find the time and space to pump breast milk with certain frequency or risk their supply drying up.

Thapar was on the shortlist of candidates after judge Antonin Scalia died in 2016. "Let's say it's the four people", Trump said. Other finalists are said to be appeals court judges Amy Coney Barrett , Raymond Kethledge and Thomas Hardiman .

Shonn Brown, a Dallas attorney who has worked in employment law, says most employers already have policies on breastfeeding.

A 2016 study published in The Lancet and cited by the NYT's Jacobs found that "the deaths of 823,000 children and 20,000 mothers each year could be averted through universal breastfeeding, along with economic savings of $300 billion".

Health advocates said that such actions by the United States were blackmail and deeply troubling as they hold the world hostage for the sake of corporations. But in 2015, Texas passed a law mandating that public employers (like cities, counties and school districts) give breastfeeding moms breaks and provide a private space for them to pump during the workday other than a "multiple user bathroom".

The administration also denied that USA officials had threatened trade sanctions in the debate over the breastfeeding resolution. These are situations during which it has been common to solicit formula donations for the affected countries, says Maaike Arts, an early childhood nutrition specialist with UNICEF.

The Times characterized the dispute at the World Health Assembly as "the latest example of the Trump administration siding with corporate interests on numerous public health and environmental issues". Millions of infants have safely consumed formula for decades.

Although formula feeding is a great option for mothers who can't breastfeed, current medical literature strongly supports breastfeeding for mothers and babies.

The U.S. failed in its effort. Perez-Escamilla is also a scientific adviser to World Health Organization on the topic of breastfeeding.
