Insane Anti-Breastfeeding Lady Is Insane

Just a little follow-up on the breastfeeding post…

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook. And frankly this attitude is quite disturbing.

It’s an anti-breastfeeding post by One Sleepy Mom.

Now — I firmly believe that women should be able to make their decision to breastfeed or formula feed without guilt.

And as a woman, I celebrate choice — whether it’s the womb or the boobs.

But that doesn’t mean I blindly support every choice a woman makes. It doesn’t mean that I agree with her reasoning.

And I have to say that I find this woman’s reasoning quite appalling and completely lacking in — I don’t know — logic?

Just a few highlights:

I am personally horrified by the thought of my mother’s breast in my mouth, and my children are extremely happy that mine was never in theirs.  There goes the “bonding” theory.

I just… what?

If you can’t sterilize or boil it, it shouldn’t go in your child’s mouth in my opinion.

Kids put their HANDS in their mouths all the time — do you sterilize and boil their precious fingers?

Have you ever sat across the table from a breastfeeding mom?  They just pull out their breast and go at it.

This has not been my experience. Almost all women that I’ve seen breastfeeding in public have been covered. But if a woman just “pulled out their breast” to “go at it” — I wouldn’t care. I think it’s great! This woman is obviously projecting her issues on other women.

I would NEVER, EVER, subject my child to knowing that my unsanitary breast was in her mouth.  If you choose to feed your child breastmilk, that’s great.  Breastmilk is the best for your baby, and you should do whatever is best.  But before you go shoving things in your children’s mouth without their consent and offending everyone around you, you might want to think about it and invest in a pump.  If you can’t afford one, your local WIC office will lend you one.

And I don’t think I need to comment on this to point out how incredibly insane this statement is. I’ll just let you bathe in it’s absolute lunacy.

Happy Wednesday!

    I’m a breastfeeding mama and absolutely love it and if you choose to formula feed then thumbs up to you too. You’re a parent making sure your kid is happy and healthy and how you get there doesn’t bother me. But what this woman has written makes me want to punch her in the throat, and I’m not a very violent person 😉 Geesh!

    Wow, what an extreme and uncommon position for a mommy blogger to take on the subject of breastfeeding. I would generally have mixed feelings about this sort of thing — I support a woman’s choice to not breastfeed for absolutely any reason at all, including finding it icky — but it crosses a line when you start talking as though everyone else should do what you do and feel how you feel.

    Um. Isn’t that what breasts are for, really? Isn’t that why we’ve been given them? Whether people choose to breastfeed is up to them, but to actually be repulsed by it? That person has Issues.
