Lactivist has NO issue with mothers who formula feed their babies.

Lactivist HAS issue with greedy formula companies who don't hold themselves accountable for their poor quality products.

Lactivism (a portmanteau of "lactation" and "activism") is the advocacy of breastfeeding. Supporters, referred to as "lactivists", seek to promote the health benefits of breastfeeding over formula-feeding and to ensure that nursing mothers are not discriminated against.

LLLGB's social media team would like to make some memes about breastfeeding a premature baby. We are looking for quotes/stories from mothers, to use in social m...edia, on our website, and potentially in our printed newsletter. We are hoping the memes will be a way to reach other mothers who may be struggling and feeling they're on their own. The quote can be anonymous, or you can give your first name, or your name and your baby's name. Photos are always welcome if you would like to provide one, or we will use pictures of flowers and landscapes. Please message the page. If you are giving a photo, we would need a release form which we will send to you.
