Humans are the only species who drink the milk of another in order to survive. In making that choice we swap mortality for morbidity and the psychological and physical sequelae are well documented. The reasons why we do this are complex and it's a constant struggle for the modern woman to achieve a balance between what she gives to herself and what she gives to her infant...
