I had to pass on this gem found by the Breastfeeding Daily Tips and News RSS Feed on the blog of a NYC husband, father and apparent breastfeeding supporter: Scott's Simple Story.
I am fascinated by things like this...it is interesting how public health campaigns are structured and worded.
For instance, today we usually hear "Breast is Best" or about the "benefits of breastfeeding" or "Breastmilk, the gold standard".
In 1914, however, they described it differently. See #4 below. "Mother's milk is the only safe food during the first six months of its life."
So, take a look at this information sheet put out by the NYC Department of Health and express your opinions on public health messages and breastfeeding of yesterday and today.
