Breast Feeding happens in other mammal species too – unlike us they can deal with it in public!

Mammals are characterised by feeding their offspring with their own milk produced my special mammary glands. In female humans these glands are our BOOBS, BREASTS, BOSOMS, what ever you want to call them. Human ladies have them and they are particularly useful for those who choose to feed their babies with them.

SO AS A FEMALE HUMAN:

  • We are part of the Mammal species which are classified by having the function of producing milk
  • Look at these cute pictures of other Mammals doing a great job fulfilling something they were born to do

I am sure you had no problems looking at the pictures of other mammals feeding their young above as it is “normal”. So why when some humans choose to breast feed, some people would rather jump out of the moving bus that you are all sitting in rather than catch a glimpse of you feed your baby? Is this picture not “Normal”???

Look at how stunning Miranda Kerr is feeding her new-born and read all about her breastfeeding experience Here.

Please note: I am a mother who know’s just how tricky the whole experience can be. Sometimes desires to breast-feed cannot be fulfilled. I only ever advocate that a relaxed, healthy and happy mum is more beneficial to her baby, regardless of what method of feeding she chooses. But I also advocate that if breast is chosen then it should be welcomed and respected the same as bottles etc. There are enough things to have to worry about and deal with as a mother, more particularly a new mother, than some one making you feel uncomfortable or ashamed of your desire to breast-feed or not too.

  1. It’s such an emotional subject, the best advice I was given was that breastfeeding is not always easy and if I worried about public reaction I was just adding pressure.. forget the public, family and friends and do what is right for you, breast, bottle or mixed feeding.. wholeheartedly agree “a relaxed healthy and happy Mum is more beneficial to baby” πŸ™‚
