In Honor of National Breastfeeding awarness month...Does this pic offend you? Sfag

Posted by   + Show Post

A woman breastfeeds her newly adopted child from Ethiopia (age 6) and her biological child at the same time, to help the adopted child feel more bonded to her...  Do think this is odd?

Honestly I do find it odd.

I think it's good for people to bond; even at work, but I don't recommend the work group have a breast feeding bonding session.

If the child is old enough to eat by themselves then I feel they're old enough not to be breast feed.

Quoting Threes.Company:

Was the child breastfed in Ethiopia just before coming over for the adoption?

 Great question!

(that would affect my answer)

Nope. Does not offend me.  What some one else chooses to do, have at it.

What I think about this means nothing in the big scheme of things.

You don't think people should breastfeed each other at work?

No I don't.

I'm not offended by the story nor pic. But, I do find it odd. I don't think the woman should be demeaned in any fashion ... I just don't think what she is doing is a good thing.

To me; it's just a difference of opinion and nothing more.
