We need to talk about breastfeeding.
Why is there so much angst and controversy about breastfeeding?
A lot of people get so worked up about topic and I don't get it.
I breastfed both my kids in public, but I always used a cover.
I don't want creepers sneaking a peek of my frost detectors.
My sis Megan has no qualms about naked-boob-feeding anywhere. Even in front of our family.
I would feel really weird about my dad and brothers seeing my nips, and the thought makes me squirm a little.
This is not a judgment on Megan, it's just how I personally handle my titties.
She should do whatever she wants.
While I cover up, I don't understand the problem a lot of people have with exposed-boob public breastfeeding.
It's just boobs, people.
Why are some people so offended when when they see a mom's boobs while she's feeding her baby?
If the mom was like squirting her milk all over everyone, then I could see how that might be offensive. Or if she was breastfeeding everyone else's kids too. Or if she tried to breastfeed your husband.... That could be weird.
But with all the evil things happening in our world you would think it's nice to see a mother caring for and feeding her child.
It's sweet. It's innocent. It's just boobs.
Plus, one time I saw this girls nips and boob-matter while she was breastfeeding in public, and I survived and continued to live my life.
Also, I don't understand why some moms judge other moms for not breastfeeding.
Who cares? Breastfeeding doesn't work out for everyone. Not every woman loves it.
Breastfeeding Ryan was a pain in the tits.
I only fed him for 6 months and couldn't wait to be done. I breastfed Tyler for 10 months and it was only slightly more enjoyable since it meant I had to sit down and read a book for 30 minutes.
I had some other moms throw judgemental comments my way because I didn't breastfeed "long enough."
I can't imagine the remarks that mothers who don't breastfeed have to put up with.
I've heard people say women who don't breastfeed do not bond with their children, they are selfish, and that their tits are not flat and flopping as the rest of us.
Non-breastfeeding moms -
If it makes you feel better, know that I support your non-breastfeeding decisions. I am here for you. I will talk with you about your perky boobs as much as you want.
I get that a lot of women LOVE it.
And good for them. If some mothers choose to do extended breastfeeding and feed their kids longer than "normal", who cares?
My friend Christie will probably breastfeed her little boy until he goes to college.
No big deal though. Her kid is nice, chill, and adorable.
I'm sure she gets some sideways glances because she can eat whatever she wants and stays thin while still having big chesticles.
How about all us moms not worry about each others boobs, because it's actually not a big deal.
Let's just all be breast friends.
