    Default Nurse in at Sunrise- sydney

    Same, I needed both hands for at least the first 6 weeks as my daughter was a menace for falling asleep on the breast. 2 sucks and she was out, every time. I needed my other hand holding her head constantly because it would fall back and I had to keep gently waking her back up so she could keep eating.

    Lol GirlX I did the muslin wrap over my entire head thing a couple of times in the first couple of weeks and then I promptly decided I did not enjoy looking or feeling like I was in a tent! Oh and big congrats

    Love that Nat11 - wish I had've known who you were to say hi

    One thing that has irked me was the press saying there was only my partner and one other male there - not true! There were plenty of supportive dads which was great

    He wrote:

    "What valid points? The guy is a complete debit! His opinion on breastfeeding is childish. But what really irks me is his complete lack of social responsibility. He is in a position where he can reach millions and unfortunately his opinion influences people.

    I went to the nurse-in to support Nat and the other Mums because as a father I get to see every tiny, dirty, stressful detail of what it takes for a woman to bring a child into this world and sustain it. I can't even begin to describe the amazing work, and dedication that I witnessed from Natalie over the past three years, with Lucas and our little poppyseed.

    These women need and deserve every little bit of respect and encouragement from us for the amazing work they do. These comments and attitudes are completely unacceptable for a modern society. They shouldn't feel awkward for looking after their child the way nature intended them to. (Perhaps why the government legislated the way they did)

    I don't mean the following to be condescending in any way but - you won't understand exactly what effect his comments have until you become a father and see it all for yourself..."

    Many of his other male friends "liked" and positively commented on his response and not one agreed with the original poster. If doing this nurse-in has brought the positives of breastfeeding to these men, the most unlikely of breastfeeding supporters, then it will have reached many more. Job well done I say.
    He's a keeper. My hubby has been having his say on fb and news websites. for these great men/dads.

    Big congrats from me too!

    And, yep, I was so unco at trying to feed. Those damn floppy boobs needing all my support. And to think I just wanted to be able to use the remote to get the TV off The Love Boat at 2am!

    For all of you who struggled with the one-handed or no-handed feed, take heart. When I had #2, he latched on immediately and I was able to feed with no-hands from the start. What a difference it made to my confidence. I remember sitting up in bed at the hospital feeding bub and having my dinner. What a nice change from my food always going cold for the first....weeks...months...with DS1!

    Flexible isn't exactly the most attractive trait for a boob (possibly otherwise known as stretched :-/) but right now I'm bfing katelyn who's laying next to me and I have both hands free for my giant smart-phone. Got to be some advantage to my boob sliding into my armpits when I lay on my back.

    YES! It took me a while to work out that all that flexibility was good for something!

How on earth do you expect any woman to feel confident in her ability to nurture and nourish her child in a unselfconscious way when you, another mother, is nastily silently accusing her of showing off her breasts! Obviously, this is why there is little expectation or cultural support for breastfeeding in this country, despite the EDUCATION that is now available.
    I am absolutley gobsmacked! Not once, ever, did I think to announce to anyone that I was "about to breastfeed". Now, I know what some of you were thinking? This is disgusting, and I am amazed that I have only just found out what some were thinking when I was happily engrossed in breastfeeding my beautiful baby. I could not have cared less if you or YOUR HUSBAND, saw my breast! Get over it.

    They're breasts, their mine, and they are nothing to do with you.
