FTFC: marvcook "...Breastfeeding is the global warming of medical science. Anyone who dares take the other side is immediately ostracized by the community. If a study showed that breastfeeding wasn't beneficial, it would never be published. Science has an agenda, and that's unfortunate. I'm certainly not bashing those who choose to breastfeed, my wife did for our first born. However, it's become a bit of a cult mentality, and it should be studied with neutrality."

Big Science is making women pop out their titties! Now that's a conspiracy I can get behind!

i worked with someone from mississippi for awhile. someone was out on maternity leave so the subject of breastfeeding came up. her contribution to the conversation was 'AIN'T NO WAY NO BABY IS SUCKIN ON MY TITTIES'. so...yeah.

Uh...what?  Do you think that tits are some sort of perpetual production device, and don't have an input?  Humans are very very inefficient eaters.  You're doubling the inefficiency - how does that make it "cheaper?"

Because babies need more than just calories. Formula is super expensive for a reason.

If they are working moms, they can't stay at home to nurse, so they have to pump.   If they work at a McDonalds, the chance of them finding sufficient time and a place to pump (other than a filthy bathroom stall) is almost nil.  Also, an electric pump costs around $100.

Also, for several decades of the 20th century, formula manufacturers convinced mothers that formula was cleaner and more nutritious than breast milk.  So lots of poor women today don't have any women relatives to help show them how it works. And yeah, breastfeeding isn't instinctive; moms don't just automatically know how to do it, and a lot of babies have trouble figuring it out, so you need lots of help.  Especially in those first weeks where you are freaking out because you are sleep-deprived and you have this new "baby" thing screamin' at ya all the time.

Plus having people give you mean looks when you are nursing in public is a bummer.

Strange as it may seem, a woman's body will sacrifice itself in order to produce a standard of quality and quantity of milk, regardless of the mother's malnutrition or lack thereof.

I generally do, but I have to say their advice that a child will wean themselves has left some mothers at the mercy of their 4, 5, and even 6 year old children's demand for breastmilk.

I've seen a woman in tears just describing her 4 year old starting to nurse again after another baby was born, and they were tears of joy because someone had drilled it into her head she was a bad mother for letting her child wean at 2.

I do think more women should breastfeed their babies if it is possible, and more importantly do not think we should be shaming women that cannot breastfeed.

I'm still confused about how, in our culture, it's unacceptable for minors to view exposed boobage in pretty much any context, but at the same time we're encouraged to whip them out and pop them the mouth of babby. Are they dangerous or not?

After the first kid we had was born Mrs. Sharksfan breast fed her AND pumped enough to donate 24-8oz bottles.  This took quite a while (a couple of months) but in the end this was donated for premies, etc in hospitals - and apparently there is some way they can culture it so the amount donated can be doubled or tripled in quanTITTY.

Anyway, she was a mad milk producing machine, and the first time we managed to get intimate after the baby was born (like two months later or so) it was a total fiasco because she was spraying milk all over.  Not sure how anyone can get into that....

When the twins were born...well, I don't remember the first 6 months really.  But one had a very poor nursing reflex/instinct and had to be dropper fed breast milk and then later bottle fed breast milk and formula. The other one was fine - the lactation consultant said that was pretty normal.

The same reason mothers in the developing world often don't breastfeed... Nestle's marketing division does a very, very good job. They put formula in the hospitals, and then the hospitals, wittingly or not, encourage the mothers to use it. And once you stop breastfeeding, a lot of times you can't just start again, and then they're stuck using formula for the baby. It's big business.

Socialization is instinctual. It's one of the main reasons we're the first global apex predator.

I forgot about that.

We never used the coupon for formula.  I think they stopped giving them to us once my wife told them she was breastfeeding.

But WIC also pays for extra food for breastfeeding mothers. The returning to work things makes sense, but this is about women who try, not necessarily continue for a year, and a few weeks of breastfeeding is better than zero.

We actually won 50 bucks (the grand prize) for our pic of her breastfeeding around New Mexico.  Same pic is featured in the New Mexico Breastfeeding Task Force calendar in July.  Today is the last day that people that enter my office will see my wife's boob.

Ugh. Okay, but saying that socialization is instinctual (and I really don't know if that is true, I'm not an anthropologist) doesn't make everything human beings do instinctual. Being part of a instinctively social group doesn't mean you are born with the knowledge of how to find non-poisonous food and build shelter.

Sorry, I didn't mean to start a debate about instincts.  Most people who have nursed or have worked as lactation consultants understand how much nursing is a learned skill, and having a teacher, ideally lots of teachers, is important.  If you grow up in a community without booby-teachers, the chances of your success in breastfeeding are much slimmer.

Mostly I'm just disappointed in the lack of pics in this thread.  Especially pics of famous breastfeeding boobies.  Where's the Salma Hayek cleavage at?

I don't think it's just lower income women. My wife recently gave birth to our first child, and the number of older female relatives and friends (who are at least old enough to be our parents, so they gave birth in the mid 80s) who've said that they didn't breastfeed or they didn't have anybody to help them figure out how to breastfeed, because their mothers (in the 50s and 60s) fed formula exclusively. There's a lot of different economic backgrounds to sample there, even if anecdotally, and it doesn't sound like there was much breastfeeding going on 25-50 years ago.

It's not directly economic.  It's largely due to culture and education.  Of course those things are linked to economics.  But with WIC the baby won't starve.  Women who do breastfeed are more likely to be white or Hispanic, married, well educated, older, middle to upper class, planned pregnancy, etc.  Just based on those demographics, it's little wonder Mississippi trails so far behind.
