To breastfeed, or not to breastfeed…is that even a question?

Posted by Hugh on 7/22/2010 to Breastfeeding
  
    The argument about breastfeeding, or formula feeding, rages on. Parents on both sides defend their position, but it seems like the pro-human milk side has an extra weight to carry. They are not only accused of successfully doing what some said they themselves could not, but also for laying on “mommy guilt”. O the shame.
 
   Everyone understands that raising children can be tricky. Some people are so scared of it that they don’t even reproduce. One thing that can be agreed upon, your life is going to change. You are going to make sacrifices. That is kinda why there is a nice payout, a lifelong friend. When a formula feeding Mom gets cornered on the issue, she generally looks for community to help justify her actions. It’s called safety in numbers. They can produce a list of reasons, or excuses, depending on which side of the argument you are on. This post being written by a man, some might say I should not even be making an observation.
 
    Anyway…
 
    Any parent feeling guilty about not breastfeeding…don’t attack those who are good examples of succeeding at it. Like any opportunity to raise your arms in victory, breastfeeding Mom’s should take it. They should get respect and admiration, not condemnation. From a nutritional standpoint, it looks kind of ridiculous to even suggest that the two foods even be compared. Formula feeding Mom’s, I suggest that you direct your anger at the formula companies, for any advertising, or lobbying for that matter (they can do that!?). Blame your workplace, your own Mom, or society in general for over-sexualizing the female breast.
