Toe this afternoon. Hmmm.
Girl X it's not so much the "it makes me feel awkward" comments that upset me but the "it's not necessaryin our society". Not necessary for who? YOU and YOUR child? Or it's revolting. Or she's doing it wrong. Or mothers only do it for their own gain.
Reading this AFTER reading things like it being child abuse, pedophilia, disgusting, sickening...the list goes on...is just depressing.
I cannot imagine how FF mothers would feel if they were told "it's just not necessary in our society", it's abuse, it's revolting, I don't need to see it etc...because that's what we have to put up with and it makes me and many others feel sh!t.
I was like really excited that a person was actually 'feeding' on the cover of a magazine!!!! Lol just skimming over the comments, I understand 'each to their own' but seriously, if you drink cows breast milk then what's the difference? Except of course the fact that human breastmilk is BETTER cows milk contains nothing these days!!! I think it comes down to personal experience and education. Before I had kids I saw extended BF as 'for mums benefit' don't know why apart from not knowing the benefits of breastmilk really. I'm a BFer with a 'boob man' this morning he was a bit h'a herm... And I just finished feeding dd3, he took her down stairs and got all the kids breakie, came back up for a little, hanky pa danky and touched my boobie, *gasp* milk came out!!!! it's really not THAT bad!! It's a natural thing, he should of grabbed a cup but grabbed me a face wash!
I don't mind she is feeding her child.
Seeing as most people feeding a four year old would feed at home before bed or something in private I don't see the big deal.
The pose is kinda odd but maybe that's how you feed a four year old. I dunno, don't have a four year old to feed.
But instead you chose to use the word sucking in the context where it would support your argument too.
I'm a new mum just dealing with breastfeeding and I actually don't like to breastfeed in public.
Besides the mother rooms having nice recliners and ottomans to use, to me it's my time with my son to bond and also myself I am a private person.
But in no way am I hiding the fact that I do breastfeed and I'm not ashamed of doing it, heck I want to see how far I go and will gladly tell people openly it's my method of helping my son to grow. But just a few PP view how I do it as being ashamed and I feel that this may just add another angle of understanding on why some mums love privacy.
To me it's my personal bonding time and my preference is not to do it around strangers and out in the open.

Jay, that's lovely hope your journey is long and enjoyable!
I loved sitting down to feed and relaxing! I used to sit, watching daytime TV and soak up all those moments. Then she became a toddler..hahaha have fun and enjoy those pinch free, wrestle free moments!
It's not the same feeding the second newbie - I have had to feed while helping a toddler do and urgent wee. Now that is photo worthy.
