Hey everyone.....I just wanted to vent a little, because I know you will all understand. What is the deal with our society and a lot of people being against bf? Lots of other societies are all for breastfeeding.....people freely breastfeed EVERYWHERE and no one looks at them as if they are doing some horrible thing.....in fact, some even look at them in awe because it is such a beautiful thing. I get so annoyed, and have these last 13.5 months that I have breastfed my daughter when onlookers gawk as if we are commiting some awful crime. I do it very descretely, and most times dont even bf in public much......when she was little we would, but with a cover, and in a rather uncrowded area. There are those who are supportive, but it is a shame that everyone cannot just be supportive of breastfeeding mothers. Breastfeeding can be challenging enough without dealing with pressures from people you dont even know!! Anyway, I try not to let it bother me, but it is annoying ya know?!! The latest comments, about "when are we going to wean competely" really get to me.....as if 13 months is sooooo old to be breastfeeding. Why is our society so bottle driven? That is frankly no ones business but my famillies, and why do they care anyhow?? Does anyone else get crap from others like this, and does it boil your blood like it does mine? I really do try to just brush it off when others poke their noses into my business, but I do get a little ticked at times.....like now!! ha ha! Anyway, I was just interested to see how many others feel this way!!
