    Default 9 news breast feeding

    Did anyone just see the segment on breast feeding?
    Suggesting women should express before going out in public and that there's no evidence that breast is best

    No. But they can stick that up their bum sideways.

    A very harmful thing to say. We need to normalizes breastfeeding not making a shameful hidden thing.

    What use is expressing if your baby won't take a bottle?

    I didn't see it but there's a few comments on the channel 9 fb page about it.

    Didn't see that but I wish I had! Comments like these can be damaging on tv because sadly, there are many who would probably agree with him. Yes, breastfeeding in public needs to be normalized again! Are they aware that women have been breastfeeding in public since the dawn of time!
    I think TJ needs to take a look at this link and apologise for making breastfeeding mothers feel like social outcasts.

    Dd is ff so I'm not speaking from personal experience, but that is ridiculous! So over this debate. Whether your baby is bf, ff, mixed fed, or any other way you can think of...AS LONG AS THRY ARE FED! No one has any right to comment negatively on how are beautiful little cherubs are fed.
