  • I really don't get it; this breast feeding "debate".
    One (meaning women) does, or doesn't.
    The ones who actually choose not to are stigmatized and branded bad mothers.
    And, as a woman, who has breast fed her child, the last thing I would have wanted to do was to share my personal, bonding experience with the whole world.
    Flopping my boob, along with my child, out in public is not my idea of empowerment.
    Share it with family and close friends, celebrate it, by all means, but not with every creepy Tom, Dick or Harry .
    There're many strange people in this world.
    Perhaps I'm just one of them.

  • There is no "stigma" attached to breast feeding.
    For some reason, some rabid women insist on breast feeding.
    We are women. Some wish to breast feed, some do not want to for various reasons, and it is not up to nurses in maternity units to force this on women.
    I was forced, and co-orced, and, in the end, it did not one whit of good except to make me feel less of a mother.
    Good luck to you, all who want and can. And curse you all who force it just because you think you can.
