Why is breastfeeding so Taboo?
I don't know why this topic came to mind. But it did. I've just had one of the best days of my life and I am unable to sleep so I thought I would blog.
And the only thing I can think about is breastfeeding. Pretty weird. You'd think I'd be counting sheep or something like that.
I really think breastfeeding is the most amazing natural thing a woman can do. It is also a beautiful sight seeing a woman nurse her baby. Breasts are made to nourish our babies. Give them warm milk to drink.
The breasts (boobs, boobies, ta-tas, hooters, cans, melons, knockers, tit's and rack) have always been seen as sex objects. I understand that men are aroused by sight, I get that and it is all fine and dandy.
I just hate for people to cringe at a woman breastfeeding her baby in public. COME ON!!! It's one of the most beautiful things you can see. I am very thankful to have breastfed my children and I still breastfeed Baby M. I love it. I wouldn't have it any other way.
So the next time you see a woman nursing her child, instead of talk about the situation like she is committing a crime, smile and know that her baby is getting the best nourishment possible.
I'm going to be very brave and post a picture of me breastfeeding Baby M. Yes, you will see a nipple. Big deal. We all have them. They come in different sizes, shapes and color. I want you to look beyond the nipple to see the expression on her face. Tell me what you see.
