Article in Newsweek about BFing
 
Check out the link to Newsweek, they have an article about more states making laws to protect breastfeeding in public. I SO applaud that!!!

However, I was appalled by some of the comments from readers! I had to pub in my 2 cents and let them know that bfing is totally natural.

"regardless of what is dangling in front of them"
this person has obviously never seen a breastfeeding baby
:holysheep: some of those comments

I'm sorry but I see women walking around with their thongs hanging out; shirts so low cut I can see their belly buttons through the cleavage; and with skirts so short that their pancreas is showing and somehow that's natural? and normal? How about all those plummer butts that you see out there? I mean, the nastiest thing in the world is a big man with back boobies with a plummer butt. And why is breastfeeding not normal but that is? I don't understand people sometimes.

It was nice to read a positive article about NIP though!

I spent about an hour last night (between tending to the kids and reading) reading those and laughed at some, and got upset at others...

DH agreed with me, thank God! He's a bit backwards, and he wants me to try and cover up, but he doesn't DIE if I don't! LOL!

I was always a little shy about nursing my dd in public. Much less so with my son. I don't know if its more practice, more age, or some of the things that I've come to realize like:
Isn't the only difference between my breasts and my DHs a little extra fat? He has a nipple too and his can be exposed w/o controversy.
And its not just function either - because I recently learned that men can lactate!

I haven't read the comments- I'm not in the mood to get angry-
but I'm super pleased to see an artical about NIP in a non-parenting magazine. Hopefully it will help in the quest to "normalize" nursing in public.

Re: Article in Newsweek about BFing
 
I am glad to see a supportive BFing article. I read some of the comments and I just dont see how people can get so offended by a woman feeding her baby. Its the most natural thing in the world, its what a woman's body was made to do. I agree with PP, I would much rathar see a mother nourishing her baby than someone running around showing their panties(or lack there of). :goodvibes:
