Study claims non-breast fed babies more likely to be abused

January 27, 2009 — 25 Comments

From the same groups who get all offended at the idea that there’s a correlation between single mothers and youth crime:

Women who do not breastfeed their infants are nearly four times more likely to neglect and abuse their child, a world-first study of Australian women has found….

Dr Strathearn concluded that the promotion of breastfeeding could be a relatively simple and cost-effective way of strengthening the relationship between mothers and babies to prevent child neglect and abuse.

The Age has more.

Unbelievably offensive. Andrew Bolt gets it right

Correlation isn?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢t causation…In this case it may well be the other way around as well – that women who abuse their children are also less likely to bother with breastfeeding.

I’d note that I don’t believe that single motherhood results in increase crime levels for the same reason; the correlation is the wrong way around.

Why though has breast feeding zealotry become so acceptable that this type of crap is published? While everyone agrees that breast feeding is good, this zealotry is hatred in a PC cloak. The reality is that not everyone can breastfeed, and as my house knows from experience, that blind nature of breast feeding zealots can and does put lives at risk.

  1. Before our daughter was born in the early 1990s, we attended several sessions at our local hospital. One of these was hosted by the La Leche League. Although it wasn't their intent – I don't think – the tone of the La Leche League presentation could be summed up as “If you don't breast feed your kid, you don't deserve to be a parent.”

    Excellent point on correlation vs. causation.

  2. Breast feeding is a must for every kid , unless until their is certain reason why you can't feed her.I have read several articles about how beneficial breast feeding is for the overall development of th baby.

  3. There may be a lot of reasons why some moms can't breastfeed their babies however, it is highly recommended for parent-child bonding. I remember when I was assisting delivery cases in the hospital, when the baby is delivered, the midwife would let the mom hold her baby right away( of course, after all the necessary procedure to ensure baby's health) to promote parent- child bonding. I believe this has to do with the psychological effect of the mom finally delivering her baby and accepting that the tiresome 9 months is finally over.

  4. Non-breast fed babies are more likely to get sick while growing up. Breast milk are full of nutrients that a new born baby needs. It helps strengthens immune system.
