Breastfeeding continues to grow in Scotland with 42% of babies, up from 36%, breastfed at 6 to 8 weeks and 64% getting the benefit of having been breastfeed for at least some time. Our three shadowy health ministers have been going on about this for some time and condemned the SNP baby boxes for not having free pumps or guidance to encourage the practice.
Tell Jenny Mara to stop whining. I’m trying to concentrate here!
Perhaps the SNP government was employing reverse psychology here, to good effect. It strikes me as the kind of thing where experts going on and on about the benefits would just make you even more reluctant to persevere with what seems, to me, quite a challenging thing to do.
That would be the Labour politicians that didn’t want the baby boxes.
