breastfeeding is a sin?

my SIL is a very religious Christian woman. but when i had my first child and decided to breastfeed she told me that ws a sin. that boobs were made to please man and not feed children.

i know she is wrong but what could possible make her say that? she even told her then 4 year old daughter who walked in on me nursing, that i was going to hell for it!!!

  • I am a Christian and I have NO idea what could make her say that. I have never heard this in all my days. My pastors wife breast fed. Many ladies at my church breast fed. What does she think all the women in Biblical days did. That's ridiculous. She needs to read up on the Bible.

  • Wow. What an ignorant, judgemental bitch. That's awful! Probably something about Adam and Eve covering their nudity after they ate the Fruit of Knowledge. But the bible never said that breasts were included in that! And why would God make them make milk if it was a sin to feed it to your baby? That lady's dumb.

  • Oh no she didn't...thats what God made breast. NOT for our DH pleasure. Just tell her to hush and if she dosen't like it then leave. Shes just jealous.

  • That's flippin' hysterical! Soooo... what? Everyone to have children prior to the invention or formula went to hell for feeding their babies?

    Well duh! Of course that makes sense! NOW I get it....... :-/

    I think maybe her preacher's a perv or something.

    How does her husband land on the controlling and manipulative scale?
