Let’s Talk About Our Society and Breastfeeding

 

Minute 3:45 is the breastfeeding discussion if you’d like to skip to it πŸ˜‰

Our society

is shown very clear in this video with Alyssa Milano and Wendy Williams speaking about Alyssa’s breastfeeding pics and how Wendy feels about them.

What interests me the most is seeing how people are so critical and harsh about their views and are so willing to make others feel as though they’re wrong.

Whether or not you breastfeed, where you have your baby, how you raise your child, who stays home, who works etc etc…there is just so much and yet we add to this by not accepting the fact that we are all different.

We will choose different ways of birthing, feeding, parenting etc and each of us have the ability and should be supported to do so. Β (As long as no one is being physically or emotional abused of course).

The fact that Wendy recognizes that she accepts breasts as sexual objects rather than as the way babies are fed is great to me. Β It shows that we have been manipulated and shown to look at breasts in other ways than how they were made to be.

Not that I don’t agree that breasts are used for sexual purposes but giving birth and nursing are also a continuum of our ‘sexual journey’.

What say you? πŸ™‚

  1. I could NOT agree more. Thank you Wendy… Thank you for this amazing opportunity… Thank you for allowing Alyssa Milano to share her thoughts and words of wisdom!! I also posted a blog and interestingly enough, my thoughts followed the path just as yours did!

    I wrote: ‘… On the flip side are the mother’s harshly judged for choosing, or needing formula. Breast is best… but babies need to eat… and if it’s not your baby, it’s not your decision!

    I end with… ‘So, to nursing mothers, pumping mothers, bottle feeding mothers, formula mothers, ALL mothers… and this includes any woman that has ever loved another human as she does her self; Love yourself…
    Love your body, Love your baby, Love your loved ones… & if you have it to give…
    Encourage someone you come across today!

    Have a Wonderful Thursday! ❀Lea”

    Honey, NOT vinegar… Water, not fire…

    Much Aloha, xoxo
