Breastfeeding just isn't feasible in today's society....it's a bit archaeic.
Says my (male) college professor during class last night.He also goes on to tell me that women today don't have time for that "nonsense"! OMG the ignorance!!!! We were discussing what topic each of us had chosen to write about for our final paper which is to be written on two things that you can compare/contrast. I chose breastfeeding/formula feeding and almost everyone in class was shocked that women still breastfeed! They could not believe that I had breastfed three kids and their attitude was "ewww why would you want to do that". I was really taken aback at the negativity towards BF'ing, especially considering there are moms in my class that are quite a bit older than me. One lady says "You couldn't have paid me to breastfeed. I have better things to do than sit around all day with a baby attatched to my boobs". IMO, that statement says alot about a person. I think its extremely selfish to just say "I just don't want to" without even educating yourself on it first. Thats a whole other debate though, lol I was just so surprised and I am super excited to write this paper. So many women are misinformed and misguided on breastfeeding, its sad to me! This is a topic that I feel really passionate about and I feel it is so unfair that women are not given the right information because there is still such a stigma attatched to it.
