Details of the standoff were revealed in a New York Timesreport that said the USA forced Ecuador, the resolution's sponsor, to drop the proposal. In defense of formula and its makers, the U.S. also reportedly threatened Ecuador with trade sanctions in retaliation for advancing the resolution.
"So it was a shock to the hundreds of World Health Organization delegates to gathered this spring in Geneva when the US delegation attempted to water down the resolution by removing language that called on governments to "protect, promote and support breast-feeding", and another reference to restrict the promotion of feed products that many experts believe are bad for young children".

"Breast is best-that's why I nursed my own sons, and I encourage other moms to continue this natural practice, which has been essential to human health since the dawn of time", Anderson wrote.
Some places in the US have spearheaded their own efforts to improve breastfeeding rates.
