I know not all women do it but is anyone against breast feeding?!
Since we live in a hotel I bump in to hotel guests time to time. And breast feeding comes up as a topic. Why? Simply because people (strangers) are not shy to talk about MY milk. HAHA
The most common remark is: “I see there is no problem with the quality of your milk…” (Our baby is considered large especially when looking at me or my husband.)
“Hm. Well, thank you!”
I guess these men and women our the strong supporters of breast feeding. I guess.
I had a hotel guest tell me that she is only hoping I do not want to go on doing this for ever. I just politely smiled. I do not see why she was concerned that I was still breast feeding my (then) 5 month old.
In Spain I was warned that my milk might change when my baby turns 4 month old and I should prepare myself if I might have to give him solids earlier than I expected to.
Why do I need to prepare myself for something that would be a sad event for me?! Should I also prepare myself for all the bad things that MIGHT happen?!
Breast feeding in public. Now that is something worth discussing! I love to feed my baby anytime and anywhere! However, I think if it is well-known that this is something that is culturally not excepted in a country I try my best not to be seen while breast feeding Zoárd. This was the case in Malaysia and here in Thailand as well.
While in Hungary and Spain breast feeding in public is not a big deal. In Spain you can even walk and talk with your partner while having your baby sucking on your nipple peacefully.
In order to prevent this post in becoming too long. Here is my last thought on the question for now: I have tried breast feeding in toilets and my reaction to it: never again.
