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.
