Ecuador was set to introduce a resolution based on that research, but as more than a dozen global representatives confirmed to the Times, American delegates threatened the smaller nation with cuts to military aid and reduced trade deals if they went forward with the proposal. At first, the USA delegates attempted to simply dilute the pro-breastmilk message, voiding language that called for governments to "protect, promote, and support breastfeeding" and limit promotion of competing baby food products that experts warn can be harmful.
"The failing NY Times Fake News story today about breast feeding must be called out", Trump tweeted. And while the United States lags behind many developed nations, most US states have significantly improved breastfeeding rates over the past decade.

President Trump responded by pointing out that his Administration is not anti-breastfeeding but in favor of giving women more choice-an exquisitely Trumpian way of co-opting the left's script. Caitlin Oakley, a spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Human Services, added in a statement that women who can't breastfeed should not be "stigmatized", but rather "equally supplied with information". He said that plenty of other research suggests breast feeding is healthier for kids and mothers alike. "It's supposed to move pretty smoothly because all of this work has been done in advance", she said.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of a baby's life, followed by breastfeeding plus other appropriate, nutritious foods thereafter. But that version lacked some of the specific language of the earlier draft that targeted the marketing practices of the breast milk-substitute industry, according to Elisabeth Sterken, national director of INFACT Canada, a nongovernmental organization that promotes infant and young child nutrition. The Coastal Health District is committed to helping mothers breastfeed their babies because breastfeeding is so important for good health. When Ecuador backed off - after all, no small country likes to be in Washington's gun sights - the US threatened any other country that might want to introduce it. Overall, women in the study who breastfed reduced their risk by 9 percent, but women who breastfed more than one child reduced their risk by 18 percent.
In 1981-the height of a massive controversy over Nestlé's aggressive marketing of formula to mothers in poor countries-the "availability of formula" resulted in approximately 66,000 infant deaths in areas with bad water, they found. "The Trump administration takes a bold stance against mother's milk", a New Republic headline read. The World Health Assembly's concern about misleading promotion of infant formula is also grounded in fact. His administration is not against breastfeeding, he argued, they just wanted to get rid of some language in the resolution that was hostile to infant formulas.
UNICEF and World Health Organization also recommend exclusive breastfeeding from within an hour of birth until the baby is 6 months old.
