Yet this is shifting by misinformation by people of confidence (like this idiot doctor) and an indoctrination by big businesses like Nestle.
I see it deteriorating however, as richer women wean at early ages, or 'choose' not to breastfeed. Working women are getting convinced of the supposed ease of formula and leave their children in the care of others (while before they would just strap the kid to their back and go on with their job).
This kind of product endorsement in hospitals and doctor's offices is an outrage and clearly unethical, but we must ask ourselves who - on an international level - cares enough about these 'poor little Africans', the best product and medicine testing market on the planet.
