I never thought much of it. I wasn’t breastfed (I think my mom was afraid she’d smother me) and I never really thought one way or another that it was a big deal. But arguments saying it’s healthier for your kids makes me think it’s worth it. I think if I didn’t have time or whatever I’d just invest in a good pump.
This isn’t something I want to debate over, especially since I have a LOOOONG time to think about it, but I’d like your thoughts on it.
It seems lately there’s a huge divide between women who do and those who don’t. I think it’s kind of sad. I wouldn’t want people to make me feel bad for something I couldn’t or didn’t want to do. I mean, I turned out OK 😮p
Why do you think there is that divide between women? Why do women who breastfeed feed like they need to practically bash women who don’t?
Ok another weird thing I’ve heard… Don’t hate me but “Breast feeding parties?” And I don’t mean everyone has their own kid their feeding..I’m talking about the ones where they pass their kids around and share! Not to offend people who do that but what’s up with that? Couldn’t another person have something your child is allergic to and give that to them? I honestly just don’t get that! I have a friend who was trying to decide on a family to give her baby to for adoption and she was turned off by a family who wanted to do that to her child.
Ok ladies, enlighten me! I’m not saying I won’t listen to your reasons why this is done… I honestly have know clue and want to know!
