I guess it depends on whether or not you go by the ABA's literature, or by the experiences that women actually have with the counsellors, because there seems to be a difference between the two, as has been discussed in this thread.
The experience of many women with the ABA is that they push the 'breast FEED at any cost' line. This is in line with the experience that many women have in so-called 'baby friendly' hospitals. I believe this is what Tamm was referring to. The government does not have a position on EBM and mixed feeding or comp feeding, yet the midwives in these hospitals are either not giving mums information about those methods of feeding, or they are making mums feel bad for wanting to explore any alternative to straight, constant breast feeding. This is not what the Government literature promotes.
I agree that women should be encouraged to do whatever works for them in their own particular circumstances. Unfortunately this simply is not happening, as evidenced by the many negative experiences outlined in this thread alone.
