Here's the thing Mama's...we all know that if we can, BF'ing is considered best for baby. I'm not knocking FF. I know there are a variety of reasons people do so and that's completly OK! However, I do think one of the reasons some people don't BF is bacause it's hard, awkward and difficult at first. That being said, I think we all need to take discrimnation of women NIP more seriously.
When I was just starting BF'ing Livy, I struggled. I'm lucky enough to have ton's of support in my community and by my family for BF'ing, even in public. If I hadn't, I don't know that I would have been able to pull it off. There is such an odd stigma attached to feeding one's baby, I just don't understand. All I'm doing is providing the best possible nurishment to my hungry baby. Why is that a bad thing?
Livy WON'T nurse with a cover. So what should I do? Never leave my house? Not feed her and have her scream in hunger?
Please enlighten me as to why some Mama's on here are against BF'ing in public? Why not support other women's choice to BF, which I think we can ALL agree is a tough thing to do!
