Conventional wisdom for years was that baby formula, not mother's milk, was best for kids. But that approach, promoted by the companies who manufactured baby formula, has now been thoroughly discredited.
 
Women are now striving to breastfeed their babies, but it's not always possible. In her book Others' Milk, Kristin Wilson offers anecdotes about the challenges women face to give children the very best nutrition, often in the face of dogmatic opposition.She's joined by breastfeeding advocates from both southern Oregon and northern California.
