Podcast: The wonders of breastfeeding

AS an accompanying podcast to our latest i Report feature, “Tempest in a (Feeding) Bottle“, environmental laywer Ipat Luna talks about how breastfeeding, despite the fact that no females in her lineage successfully breastfed their children, became a clear choice when her son Alon finally arrived four years ago.

It helped that Luna’s husband is himself a breastfeeding advocate. But she also soon realized she would have to live with a host of practical things if she did not breastfeed — like dragging around a sterilizer everywhere for the next six months; making sure the temperature is right, the water is boiled the right amount of time; making sure the mixed milk doesn’t spoil, the mix is exactly right, the measuring spoon, the edge of the can, the very air is safe.
