Why do people try to make you feel as if you are molesting your child when you breastfeed them? Anyone who's ever breastfed could tell you that there is NOTHING sexual about it! Maybe they should feel bad that they DIDN'T breastfeed! I quit with Drew at about 3 1/2 months and I feel guilty... Give me a break. He isn't getting a bottle when I'm around. How do you think I make milk???

  1. I know you already know about Not that you should have to educate people about your parenting decisions, but you can also tell them that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusive breastfeeding until 6 months, and continued breastfeeding until one year or as long as mutually desired. The World Health Organization recommends continued breastfeeding until age 2 or as long as mutually desired. Breastfeeding is about nutritian and bonding. It makes me so angry when people make negative comments. It's hard enough to breastfeed without negative pressure from people it doesnn't affect. I've got your back (not that you need it - you're strong enough for both of us).
