Ah... people and their stupid hangups. The recent cover of Baby Talk magazine featured a mother feeding her infant. For some reason, this has offended people. Um... seriously. Breasts make milk. Babies need milk. Therefore, breasts are for babies. Duh. Breasts have been so sexualized in this country, that many seem to have forgotten the reason we have them. WE HAVE THEM TO FEED BABIES.... not for the pleasure of men. Sigh... is this so hard to remember people? Breasts are for babies. I could rant on and on about this, but I won't. Too many others have done a better job. Kateri has put out a call to all of us to post our breastfeeding pictures to remind others that not only is it not obscene, it's what they are made for.
Ruby is seven weeks old and she's been nursed all over the place. Everywhere from the park concert to home depot, thankfully no one has said anything to me, cause I'm a force to be reckoned with when I'm angry. Trust me.
This was on monday... Ruby was almost 7 weeks old.
A few weeks ago.. nursing out in the back yard after an outdoor bath.
The first time she latched on - the day she was born. :)
Now.. do you understand what breasts are for? Or do we need to go over this again?
