Donor Expressed Breast Milk

Mothers and babies must have basic facilities

In their letter headlined 'Breast-feeding makes sound financial sense' (Sunday Morning Post, August 19), Maggie Holmes and Jane Parry touched on issues brought up in the report about 'free baby milk' in hospitals (Sunday Morning Post, August 5).

Nurses proved to be very supportive

I have been reading the letters which have appeared in these columns, debating the state of breast-feeding education in public hospitals in Hong Kong. I do not know what goes on in every hospital, but I would like to relate my experience in May when I gave birth at Princess Margaret Hospital.

What's best for a baby

WOMEN who breast-feed in public are coming under fire, as if they are exhibitionists who should know better than to offend conservative sensibilities. It has even been suggested that they should pump their milk into bottles before going outdoors with their babies. They should do no such thing.

Nature's way

I REFER to the letter headlined 'Use Pump' (South China Morning Post, February 3) by Name and Address Supplied. I do not know the sex of the correspondent but can safely presume that he or she is not a breast-feeding mother.

The benefits of breast-feeding as a source of nutrition, comfort and protection against infection have been widely documented.
