KATIE ALLISON GRANJU reports that the American Academy of Pediatrics has been plunged into a breastfeeding scandal — er, well, a breastfeeding ad scandal, anyway.

UPDATE: Here, by the way, is a link to Granju’s book, Attachment Parenting. And here is her blog. On the other hand, reader Tom Gunn is taking a rather cynical view:

How long do you think it will be before we start hearing this ad campaign detailing the dangers of infant formula feeding is nothing less than a thinly veiled attempt by the Bush administration, male doctors, and a few female traitors to keep women barefoot, pregnant and on the edge of town?

It’s probably up over at DU now. . . .
