In this May 19, 2013 photo, Ruth Gonzalez, a clothing company manager, feeds baby formula to her 9-month-old son Luis Fernando at her home in Mexico City. “Breast milk would have possibly been good for my baby’s health, but it was complicated. Formula was just easier,” she said. “I was thinking about the future. I had to go back to work and I wasn't going to be able to breast-feed him for long. Gonzalez fed her baby with breast milk only at night, after work. He drank formula the rest of the day, and went off breast milk completely after a month. Mexico moms have dramatically cut back on breast milk for their babies and turned to infant formula, dropping the country to nearly the lowest level of breast-feeding in Latin America.
