Venezuela considers banning baby bottle feeding
The Venezuela congress is to discuss legislation next week that would prohibit bottle feeding of infants in an attempt to encourage breast feeding and reduce the use of baby formula.
Odalis Monzon, from Venezuela’s ruling Socialist party, said the proposal would “prohibit all types of baby bottles” as a way to improve children’s health.
“We want to increase the love (between mother and child) because this has been lost as a result of these transnational companies selling formula,” Ms Monzon said.
I first heard about it in Bayly’s show (via YouTube, in Spanish),
Insanity in the form of Communism, pure and simple. The fact is that the country cannot produce and has no money to import basic foods, such as baby formula.
In Communism, children belong to the state, so it’s not up to the parents how to raise them and feed them.
Anyone who has any experience in child rearing knows that you need baby bottles.
As far as love between mother and child, Ms Monzon does not appear to have much experience on that, either.
