costermonger: 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.


My wife's mother was told by her doctors not to nurse because 'formula is better' in the 70's and her mother was told the same thing in the 50's. As I understand it, many women since the 30's have been told by their doctors not to nurse.

machoprogrammer: Wait guys get turned on by watching babies breast feed? Nassssssty


I don't really object to the significantly increased boobage that's visible around the house these days, but a breast that's being used for breastfeeding just isn't as sexually interesting (even when there's no infant attached to it) as a non-breast feeding boob. I don't have any sort of aversion to breastfeeding, but it's definitely not a turn on. Show me those things when they go back to normal.

I had no idea (until now) how uncommon it was during that period. Thankfully, both my mom and my mother-in-law did breastfeed their kids, so there's a bit of help to be found (along with lots of support from the healthcare system here).

tuna fingers: Gonz: This is good. My wife's a member of the militant wing of La Leche League.

So is mine.
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.


So since today is August 1st, what you're saying is that you're really lazy about changing your calendar....

Since I'm not medically schooled, this will sound more like a client/server setup. But that's how I remember what we were told by a lactation consultant.

When a baby is ill, he'll try and interface with the boobs more frequently. With every successful connection, he sends a request for antibodies with a malware sample as payload. The mother's immune system thread identifies the malware and starts generating the antibodies. They are piggybacked on the milk with the next download.

And how exactly would formula implement Antibodies As A Service?

ReverendJynxed: Yes, because secretly we all wish our women were like the floor dragging National Geo's.


Shallow Hal, is that you?
