Beer stimulates milk production (no, seriously - my wife is a nurse and occassionally has to teach breasfeeding to first time moms).  Mothers who are having trouble nursing are encouraged to have a bit of beer.  As long as they don't nurse the baby within the hour, the tiny bit of alcohol in ~4oz of beer will be metabolized - and they can always pump and toss the milk if still concerned.

What's really surprising about that add from the 70's is that it didn't come with a coupon for a case of Marlboro's too  :o

I think the name dissipated in 2000.  I never had a chance to try this long standing recipe.

I see nothing wrong with these ads. Except the last one, that ain't right.
