The following is taken from the site of the author, long-time Baby Milk Action supporter, Alison Blenkinsop:
This book is a celebration of breastfeeding, motherhood and related topics. It contains my own compositions of songs and verse, and other material including cartoons, stories, quotations and information on feeding in the human and the animal world.
Profits from the sale of this book will be given to Baby Milk Action to help its vital work of protecting breastfeeding, and protecting babies fed on formula, by ending the irresponsible marketing of breastmilk substitutes. This is a matter of life and death; in areas with unsafe water a bottle-fed child is up to 25 times more likely to die as a result of diarrhoea. (I saw babies die from lack of breastfeeding when I lived and worked in Pakistan with CMS from 1976 to 1990.) In developed countries, a bottle-fed baby has a lower standard of health than a fully breastfed baby in the developing world. According to UNICEF, reversing the decline in breastfeeding could save 1.5 million lives around the world every year.
Baby Milk Action is a non-profit organisation that works within a global network, the International Baby Food Action Network (IBFAN). See Baby Milk Action
The book's production is entirely independent of Baby Milk Action, and the organisation takes no responsibility for any of its contents.
(tune: Rule, Britannia!)
For many years I have been writing humorous songs
to raise awareness of the many things that steal breastfeeding’s heart and soul,
and now I have a book to enable me to reach that goal.
This is my purpose, to help correct those wrongs,
and raise funds for Baby Milk Action’s vital role.
Love, and Mum’s milk, will save the world, I trust;
learn all about it while you’re laughing fit to bust!
