This photograph was taken by UNICEF in Islamabad, Pakistan.
These babies are twins. The bottle/formula-fed baby is a girl. She died VERY shortly after this picture was taken. Her twin brother was breastfed and, as you can tell, thrived. The mother was told that she would only be able to produce enough milk for one baby, and that is why she chose to bottle-feed the girl. I wonder if she knows the impact this picture is having on people around the world.
I can't think of anything that so definitively and so powerfully shows why it is fundamentally important that breastfeeding is promoted and supported and that pharm companies that produce formula are required to give less biased information.
I know, opening a can of... fake milk here, ain't I?
