#AtoZChallenge the Pappas QUADS from Baltimore
Bottle feeding was very popular during the baby-boom. Not because the moms were working - it was for the convenience and savvy marketing, touting that cows milk formula was better than breast milk. Multiple births, always led to bottle feeding and contracts with the formula companies that would pay the family in diapers, formula - whatever up to a year. Not a bad deal.
Lets face it - babies were BIG Business back then and everyone was baby CRAZY.
It must have been a terrible time for women who couldn't get pregnant.
