    But I really am curious as to why you think it's sad.
    I just don't find it funny at all.

    I actually cherished the time I was feeding my child. I would not expect my 6yo to feed my baby and I just think it's sad to even make a joke of it.

    Fair enough. I didn't even consider anything like that while looking at the photo.

    Honestly, I don't fully understand your sadness any more than I understand people being so outraged and offended by the photo, but we've all had different experiences and they've obviously influenced the way we view things. For example, when DS was little pretty much everyone in the immediate family fed him so that aspect never even occurred to me.

    I'm actually starting to find this whole thing fascinating. It's amazing how people can look at the same picture and see something totally different.

    I found bf my first difficult. I have huge breasts. So feeding her was when I felt close to her. I could hold her closer than when trying to bf because of size. I guess I see feeding as an intimate part of being a mum.

    Now that I can definitely understand. I was never able to breastfeed DS at all and I have a whole heap of guilt over it.

    This is exactly where I was coming from it's all about perspective.

    Don't forget that baby in the photo is a twin, the one on one bonding cherish feeding time flies out the window when you have more than one, no matter how much you want it.

    Not everyone cherishes the one on one feeding time. I had massive problems breastfeeding - so my first experience feeding my child was a nightmare, literally awful. I just wanted it to stop. When the twins came along there is no looking lovingly into one babies eyes while feeding, because you are either doing two at a time, which is a total pain, or one is screaming while you are doing the other. And what about triplets - almost impossible to feed three at the same time.

    I think it is lovely that some people love looking into their babies eyes when feeding, but that is not always possible. They could do that 99.99999% of the time and just this one time they didn't.

    Those kids look well loved and well fed, I really think that some people are getting overly anxious about their well being. I also think this is another example of how social media is changing society for the worse.

    This family doesn't deserve the vitriol and judgement that they are receiving. To be honest I feel sad for them, and think says more about the negative posters than the family itself.

    [QUOTE=BigRedV;7795373] I guess I see feeding as an intimate part of being a mum.[/QUOTE

    And for me, I think it doesn't matter how they are fed but how they are loved. As you most likely know, I struggled to breastfeed and was unable to do it in the endnand was racked with guilt over it for years. But now, I realise all that guilt was a complete waste of time. My kids are loved, and that is all that really matters.
