    Nope

    Some women are physically unable to breast feed. Some babies can't breast feed properly. Also some babies may have an intolerance to lactose

    I think saving $50 a week by not having to buy formula would be cash incentive enough.

    I think a better idea would be more readily available lactation consultants, preferably free or heavily subsidised and they visit your home.

    I think most people start out wanting to breastfeed, but more practical support is needed.

    This!


    I think BFing should most definitely be 'encouraged' - but there would be no way to control such a 'payment'

    What about people who can't breastfeed?

    Why? Surely the nutritional superiority of bm as well as that it costs nothing other than time and possibly some investment in support is enough motivation? (I say that in full recognition that bf is not easy for many of us and things sometimes do not work out). If there is cash floating around to increase bf rates then surely it would be better used in educating midwives and other hcp, subsidings LCs, supporting the ABA etc.

    You shouldn't be rewarded because you can breastfeed. The money would be better spent on services to help women like local clinics, lc's through Medicare etc.
