When will we walk the talk about breastfeeding?


This talks about general politness as well as supporting breastfeeding.

Though I am a rabid supporter of breastfeeding, I try to be careful not to have a negative attitude to strangers I meet who bottle feed. I had to bottle feed my oldest. She/we had problems and I had no where to go to for help. No internet, no books that dealt with more than just plain, normal nursing, the only family member experienced in nursing was my grandma who died when my oldest was four weeks old. Now, I would just Google it.

There are times when bottle is necessary.

But we need to realize that breast is best and bottle is just a man made substitue. It is better than any other alternatives, but it is still second best. We need to support the God-made choice any time and way we can.

Thank you so much for commenting! I love to talk to my readers.

I do ask that there be no anonymous commenters, though. If I am brave enough to put my name on this blog, you should be too:-)

Please keep it civil. Remember we are all human and make mistakes, and that since we can't see each other's faces or hear each other's tone of voice, it is very hard to get the emotion in what we are saying each other. Use lots of emoticons! :-) And show grace and love to each other.
