not a knock on the practice, just on the people bitching. They appear to be a little overfed..
My store actually had to put up a breast feeding decal in our window to show we were allowing it. I swear.
I don’t care about overfed. They do seem to be a little overloud.
Bottles can be sanitised...and they don’t offend. Breasted feeders are. Exibitionists
Speak for yourself. My daughter is confident, well-adjusted and beautiful. Just saying...
That's too much of a global overgeneralization. Most nursing moms nurse in public so modestly that you'd never see anything improper unless you were a doggone voyeur with an angled periscope.
And I'm supposing that wouldn't be you.
Wow, patriot 08. You sound like many of the teen moms I dealt with on a regular basis when educating them on how the benefits of breastfeeding could protect their babies for life. They responded, “So yucky though!” Ummmm, yeah. Then you probably shouldn’t be having a child, because you appear to still be behaving like one.
Whacko, attention mongers.
Wacko attention mongerers is right.
My mother never breastfed any of her five children, and we’re all healthy and well adjusted. Breastfeeding is highly over-rated, nasty and is practiced by wacko attention seekers.
My nephews wife was completely covered up with a blanket while breastfeeding but that didnt stop the triplets from asking whatcha doing with/to Vivian, Aunt Ro, Why is she under a blanket?, Is she cold?; they were very curious. Their aunt told them she was feeding the baby but the triplets didnt understand as they didnt see any bowls, plates, spoons or sippy cups or baby bottles. Their mom came in and explained to them that their aunt was breast feeding the baby just like she had done with them when they were little babies. Their aunt asked their mom first if it was OK and then she pulled the blanket back so the triplets could see.
And their questions and reactions were priceless. Rather than thinking it was in anyway odd or unnatural they just had questions like asking their mom if she really did that when they were babies. And she told them, yes, as much as I could but since you were triplets, I didnt have enough milk in my breasts to feed all of you all that you needed so you also were also sometimes fed with baby bottles and formula milk, sometimes with my breast milk added to it when you were very small in order to help you grow big and strong. And they said things like, "wow" and "cool".
One of the triplets asked her Aunt Ro if breast milk was like real milk like from the Turkey Hill store and did she have to warm it up first like in the microwave like their mom and dad still did for the cup of milk they got before bedtime, and one asked if it came in different flavors like chocolate or strawberry or apple juice. Then little Helen stroked her babys cousins head and said, Oh. That is so sweet. Little Vivie looks so happy and so do you Aunt Ro. It looks like love. : ) Then she went over to her mom and hugged her and said, I love you mommy. True story. Out of the mouth of babes.
It is too bad that apparently some here think that breastfeeding a baby is something to hide or even be ashamed of instead of like what little Helen saw it for; It looks like love.
Ram Reasturant in Happy Valley? A gay bar?
Nursing a baby is't just a relationship between a mammary gland and an alimentary canal. It's a relationship berween a whole person and a whole person. It facilitates interpersonal response in every way, in a way that is developmentally optimal for the baby, as well as increasing a woman's satisfaction and success in mothering. I'm not saying yuou can't raise babies well while settling for some substitute form of feeding (like a bottle). Neither my husband nor I were breastfed, and we're fairly normal. (Er... on the other hand, maybe that explains a lot...)
Anyhow, a decent society supports this natural mother-baby bonding. An indecent society does not.
A decent man appreciates this, and recognizes when it it is done in a manner which observes modesty and respect. An indecent man does not.
It looks like love.
I really wonder if anybody would tell the Mother of God to do it in the bathroom.
Thank you for sharing that lovely story, MD Expat in PA, and for the beautiful picture you shared Mrs. Don-o. I was going to upload a picture of my gorgeous daughter breastfeeding my grandson, or my grandson in his knitted breast hat that says, “Milk Addict” but I don’t have them uploaded to a photo account so I couldn’t.
95% of the mamas at our church breastfeed, and they have lots of children, so there are babies being breastfed all the time. Some use cover-ups, some don’t. It is part of our culture, and I appreciate that our sons are raised with the breast symbolizing loving and nurturing a child, not something sexualized to oogle at. When you have children in the home from 20 to newborn, your sons (and daughters) grow up seeing breasts everyday. They understand that breastfeeding is not sexual, but instead a symbol of a mam’s love for her child.
You must have wonderful church!! I am fascinated!!
De-sexualizing the woman’s breasts...Ah yes, Feminism rears her ugly head once again.
And not even church-going women are immune to its false promise of “liberation”.
