Video: Growing a First Food Movement

My favorite Lactation Consultant sent out this link:

The video explains the history of breastfeeding, and how formula was developed only for those babies who cannot breastfeed.
Formula use spread and moms started choosing to use it instead of breastfeeding, it became sort of a status symbol to formula feed your baby, while breastfeeding was considering only for the "poor" people. It was only in the last 40 years that breastfeeding became socially acceptable again thanks largely to the La Leche League.

What are your thoughts on this video?
