This article profiles Catherine Pardoe, a co-founder of the Baby Café. Pardoe founded the Baby Café in Great Britain to provide community support for women who would otherwise stop breastfeeding. The author describes Pardoe as a measured woman, who remains calm, even when discussing marketing campaigns for infant formula, which allegedly seeks to undermine breastfeeding. The process for developing baby cafés in neighborhoods across Great Britain is described, and the challenges facing the promotion of breastfeeding are noted. Statistics from the British "Infant Feeding Survey," conducted in 2005 and an article on the public health effects of breastfeeding published in the June 2006 issue of the "Health Education Journal" are noted.
