Breastfeeding, Plate Eating and Finger Foods




Even statues know breast is best!

I've had the good fortune of never having been a victim of ignorant comments when breastfeeding my children in public, but sadly, many women have. Jamie informed me about a couple of recent stories in the U.S..

The 3 questions that I wish I could ask the people who think breasfeeding is gross, primitive, inferior to a bottle etc, are:

1. Have you ever read the ingredients that make up formula?

2. Do formula ingredients sound like something you'd like to consume?

3. If no one is judging you for what you are eating and how you are eating it, why do you feel you have the right to judge how a child is fed?



More on this topic to follow...gotta go nurse my hungry babe.

Breastfeeding is beautful. How could something so natural not be?

I totally agree. I hope the tide is turning, because how can people deny the benefits of breastfeeding?
