To the Editor I read with interest the Viewpoint in JAMA Pediatrics, “Unintended Consequences of Current Breastfeeding Initiatives,” by Bass et al.1 Because that article is an opinion piece and not a research study, I feel comfortable sharing my opinion as well. My qualifications are that I have actually worked in a Baby-Friendly Hospital for 17 years.
