My aunt is pregnant-due in May. I brought up breastfeeding today as I was emailing with her & she said she cant because of a medication she is on for a heart condition. I said I was sorry she wouldnt get the opportunity but that I was happy her baby is doing well. She told me she only considered it because her husband wants it since he thinks it is healthier. But she is comfortable with her choice & is sick of "breastfeeding nazis" judging her for not being able to. Then she acted upset and said she was going to take a bath.
Without thinking about it I offered her some of my pumped milk saying if she wanted it so the baby would at least get some for the antibodies and health benefits I would be happy to share. Now I am questioning how another mom would take that...am I being a pushy breasfeeding nazi and making her feel worse or was it nice of me to offer?
