Omg...I hope you laughed in their face! How dumb!

I was a bridesmaid in my best friends wedding and at the reception, I was getting water and some guy asked me if I was getting an alcoholic drink (or something) and I said I was just drinking water cause I have a 9 month old that I breast feed. Then like 20 minutes later there were several people all gathered around and I heard him say something like "and there's people talking about breastfeeding, what the hell" I gave him a dirty look. a*****e, you asked!!

My grandma asked me this morning, "You're not still nursing him, are you?" as if I shouldn't be... he turned 1 a week ago. Eh, I just let it roll off my back. I'm proud of our breastfeeding relationship. :)

I think you're just being super sensitive about it, OP. She didn't even say anything shitty to you.



I just don't get why anyone has issues with breastfeeding. It's natural and has been around forever. You think women were giving their babies a bottle of formula hundreds of years ago?



A girl asked me if breastfeeding felt like peeing. Stupidest question ever. :P

Me and her father in law told her off. Than after that she just talked more shit. So I laughed and I was like I love when someone I don't even know has to talk about me all night. My b**bs my choice b***h. It's just who the f**k thinks b**bs were made for men. She has 3 kids too.

I wonder if it stems from the wealthy people hundreds of years ago that would have a wet nurse feed their infants instead of doing it themselves? I was just wondering myself why there is such a stigma attached to breastfeeding in current times. Maybe that idea that breastfeeding meant you were a lower class just hasn't fully gone away.

yeah, cause processed, sugary, COW's milk compares to fresh unprocessed human milk specifically made for your child.

There is no need for a human to ever drink cows milk.

You may have something there, I didnt think of that. I'm sure a big part of it lately is because women's breasts are so sexualized.

I think part of it too is when formula really got big (what, in the 70's/80's) that it became the norm for so many years and now that breastfeeding is making a come-back, it's hard for people to adjust.

I read something on yahoo today about how they shouldn't be recommending three servings of milk a day because it's just too much sugar and there are plenty of other ways to get calcium. And probably some other reasons but I don't remember. My work computer won't let me read your link.
