"A lot of times, Mom tries to do so much and has so many interruptions that by night No. 2, she's exhausted and asking for supplements," said Brenda Bandy, who's active in the Kansas Breastfeeding Coalition. "Or everybody is concerned that Mom isn't getting enough rest, so they say, 'Let's get the baby a bottle so (Mom) can get some sleep.' All of these things are well-intentioned and understandable, but they're not supportive of breastfeeding."
Breastfeeding advocates also object to the hospitals sending mothers home with free cans of baby formula provided by manufacturers.
"We see the formula industry as a barrier," said Bandy, who's also a member of the U.S. Breastfeeding Committee.
Bandy leads an in-state initiative called Business Case for Breastfeeding that's designed to help employers understand the needs of breastfeeding moms.

"Women have a right to breast-feed and to meet their baby's needs wherever they are, period," said Brenda Bandy, professional liaison for La Leche League of Kansas, a breast-feeding support group.
Bandy, who teaches breast-feeding at a Fort Riley hospital, said many new mothers stop breast-feeding or decide not to breast-feed at all because of fears about nursing in public.
"I've had mothers say they feel like they can't go anywhere," she said.
Bandy, the La Leche League official, said increased awareness about the need for mothers to nurse in public bodes well for the proposed law.
"We just think the time is right," she said. | The Lawrence, KS Loats clan..., 12 April 2005 [cached]
It's all part of a public education campaign to explain the new state law that allows for public breastfeeding."The law is really no good unless moms know about it," said Brenda Bandy, a representative of the La Leche League, a breastfeeding-rights advocacy group."These cards are handy, they're durable, and they might just be the little bit of added confidence some moms need."Each of these cards have the words "A mother may breast-feed in any place she has a right to be" printed on its front; the back contains numbers to call for information on the law or for breastfeeding help.In addition, if a woman is asked to leave any premises because she's breastfeeding, there's a number for her to call to report it.Read | Permalink | Email this | Linking Blogs | Comments [Blogging Baby]
