RAMOS, Danielle Carvalho  e  NICOLAU, Roseane Freitas. In the crocodile's mouth: the indigestible face of exclusive breastfeeding. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2015, vol.47, n.1, pp. 73-89. ISSN 0101-4838.

This article discusses the possible implications of the exclusive breastfeeding programs which, strongly grounded on an ideal of motherhood, ensure the fulfillment of prescriptions regulated by the breastfeeding on demand, ruling that the mother should just provide to the baby, at least until the sixth month, the breast-milk as the only food and oral object. Resuming some considerations of Jacques Lacan, we propose to think of the tendency to excessive presence of the mother occasioned by this discourse that aims to benevolence, doing emerge, as a possible counterpoint, the baby like a rest-object at the maternal fantasy. Could we think the discourse of breastfeeding as favoring a prolongation of alienating relationship between mother and child, with serious consequences for the baby? As regards the maternal fantasy, the baby could be taken as an object of the jouissance for the Other? These are issues to be discussed throughout the text.

Palavras-chave : exclusive breastfeeding; jouissance; anguish; avidity.
