Pakistan recently banned a bunch of words from texting. One of them was "breast". So breastfeeding women their now have yet another obstacle in the way of establishing and maintaining an adequate milk supply... I wish I could do something about it--not that there are likely many women or lactation consultants who would want to use that word via texting or couldn't use a different word, but its the principal of the matter, really.
