    Yeah. I thought oz was low but 3%! No wonder you don't see it around much. I think in oz it's twenty-something %?

    And £100 a litre! Who's making the money? The milk banks? The donors?

    I think you're judging it unfairly. I think the fact that it's natural and normal is one of the messages that comes from it. It's about the filmmakers thought process while learning more about BFing.

    I don't think scoffing at these things is fair, this is one way to challenge social perceptions.

    I thanked your quote because you aid it far more succintly than I ever could.

    I agree, and as far as a documentary on breast feeding goes, I think it's a very well balanced one.

    I thought Thermo was talking about the show, not BF?

    I really enjoyed the show but it brought up a lot of emotions for me. It really took me back to those first 6-8 weeks where it was such a struggle.

    Plus, and this is completely off the topic, there were lots of shots of Brighton Pier... reminded me of life pre-baby!

    Sorry I'm not really sure what your on about Cue, maybe you need to read my post again :handshake: I haven't watched it and I won't be, some of the comments I have seen on Facebook and on here have put me off watching it. Difficult birth, they were a bit rough with the baby? I don't like watching that stuff. My was in reference to my own Bp not the show, those sorts of things upset me so I'm not really sure where you got the scoffing thing from. Anyway, I think you misunderstood my post. If your commenting on my reference to breast just being normal well IMO it is I don't mean any offense to anyone I do think it's important to be careful of what language we use around breastfeeding but I've posted about that before and if you don't follow you can do a google search for "breastfeeding watching language".

    Yeah I meant she was judging the show unfairly. Nothing to do with anyone's stance on BF.

    Maybe I did misunderstand your post. It sounded like you were dismissing the show based on its title and a few comments in social media. The 'difficult birth' and 'rough handling' were not what was implied by a PP IMO, and the show actually gave a really positive message about 'extended' BFing and the health impact for mum and bub in general.

    Personally I prefer to see these things for myself. I happen to agree that BF is normal but I'm also conscious of how complex a BF journey can be. In that regard this doco was interesting.

    If your comment was in reference to a personal thing that makes these things a sensitive issue, then fair enough. It just didn't read that way to me.
