How the Way We Feed Babies Has Come to Define Motherhood, and Why It Shouldn'tBook - 2012
Part memoir, part popular science, and part social commentary, Bottled up examines breastfeeding politics through the lens of Barston's own experiences as well as those of the women she has met through her controversial blog, The fearless formula feeder. Incorporating expert opinions, medical literature, and popular media into a pithy, often wry narrative, Barston offers a corrective to our infatuation with the breast. Impassioned, well-reasoned, and thoroughly researched, Bottled up asks us to think with more nuance and compassion about whether breastfeeding should remain the holy grail of good parenthood" -- Book jacket.
