Okay, it's no secret that I'm not a fan of the lactivitsts. Those who fight for the rights of breastfeeders I totally get, but I don't appreciate those that are condescending towards formula moms (and let's face it, that's most of them.)
Anyway, there's a latch-on going on today, and I've had several friends posting pics from the event on Facebook. I am astounded at the number of women there who are just FAT. I'm not talking about "I'm still carrying some baby weight." I'm talking about "I am packing a good extra hundred pounds." This isn't the first time I've noticed that many breastfeeding moms tend to be on the heavy side, which brings me to the question, "What's the point of being adamant about nursing, and extended bf'ing, if you're just going to turn around and feed your child whatever crap you're eating all day that's making you overweight?"
**EDIT** I suppose I wasn't very clear in this post. To clarify, I'm talking about all of the junk these women feed their children AFTER they are weaned....when they eat as a family. And for those saying "the mom doesn't always eat what the kids eat...give me a break. I highly doubt Big Mama is gonna fry her up some chicken as the kid sit and snack on tofu. Be real.
