Over the years I have heard people contradict themselves. Basically say one thing, but really mean another. From admitting that they know breastfeeding is the best option for baby, but when they reach the ripe age of one all of a sudden it changes and mom should wean immediately. How can you in one breath say you know breastmilk is the most beneficial, but then take it back as soon as the child has a birthday? I have listed seven statements people make that contradict each other.
1.) "You really should breastfeed, breast is best you know... "
Mom chooses to breastfeed and she is a year strong!
"You're still breastfeeding? Shouldn't you consider weaning by now?"
2.) "Breastfeed how you're most comfortable."
Mom breastfeeds proudly with no cover and no shame.
"Well I meant breastfeed how you're most comfortable, but at least use a cover."
3.) "That's great that you breastfeed on demand!"
Mom breastfeeds on demand. Mom breastfeeds when baby needs comfort. Mom breastfeeds whenever baby wants.
"Is that baby always attached to that boob? He can't be that hungry all the time. Is your supply okay?"
