7 Ignorant Things People Say About Breastfeeding...
Why Breastfeeding has turned into such a controversial topic, I will never know. And why people think they get some sort of “say” on how they think someone should feed their child is beyond me. Since starting my page, Breastfeeding Mama Talk, almost three years ago, lets just say I have pretty much heard every negative thing in the book that people say about breastfeeding.
1.) "Shouldn’t you use a cover?"
If you are someone who has ever said that or thought that please read this. First and foremost, you should never place YOUR conditions onto someone else, especially over how they feed their child. Second, most woman I have talked to, not that they need a reason, but they say they don’t use a cover because baby doesn’t like it and will instead fight with the cover rather than nursing. I want you to try something for me. Get a drink, put a blanket over your head, and drink with it over your head for ten minutes. See how that makes you feel and how comfortable it is. Because, that is exactly how it will feel for the baby nursing. I actually did try it for ten minutes and I was in my AIR-CONDITIONED home and by the time I took the LIGHT weight cover off I was dripping sweat, I felt hot, and the whole time it was over me I felt in the dark, and just extremely uncomfortable. So why in the world would I expect a cute little baby to drink that way any time baby is out on public?
