Pediatrics Journal says to stop calling breastfeeding natural

Fans of the AVN writes:
“If you ever wondered whether the world has gone completely and utterly crazy, wonder no more. In a recent article in the journal, Pediatrics, doctors are being urged to stop ‘claiming’ that breastfeeding is natural.
In fact, “The authors have started a public campaign to end the positive use of the word natural, claiming that it is associated with such “problematic” practices as home birth, homeschooling and the rejection of GMO foods, and that natural parenting movements are interfering with vaccination efforts.”
Go natural, I say! And down with doctors who want to discourage the positive connotations of what parents instinctively know to be true:
Breast is best;
GMOs are bad
Natural parenting is respectful of both parent and baby
and vaccination efforts SHOULD be interfered with if they involve any form of compulsion, coercion or suppression of information.
The article states:
“Studies have shown that anti-vaccination sentiment tends to overlap with reliance on and interest in complementary and alternative medicine, skepticism of institutional authority, and a strong commitment and interest in health knowledge, autonomy and healthy living practices.”
I think they have something there! 🙂 Feeding Baby
