Compelling breast to be best

Advocates of Liz Weatherly's petition, which seeks to protect women who breastfeed on other people's property from being asked not to, often point to the World Health Organisation as the source of their claim that weaning is not recommended before toddler-hood, and that breast is not just best "it is normal."

The WHO politicisation of breastfeeding and their willingness to use compulsion to push their view are examined here at Tech Central Station. And my earlier comments on Weatherly's petition can be found here.
