Feeding a baby with a bottle could become a crime in Venezuela if some lawmakers get their way.

According to CNN, the proposed legislation would outlaw bottle feeding in an effort to encourage mothers to breast-feed.

The lawmaker behind the bill says it would improve the overall health of children and reduce the use of baby formula.

Exceptions to the law would be made in the case of the death of a mother or for women with limited breast milk production.
