should women breast feed in public or go some where private? (Page 9)
Queenie The Poo: *Sighs* Do you think it's fine to be in a public place, like a shopping centre, and have a 6 year old sucking milk from a breast?
wolfsongstormspirit: The second one wasn't a personal blog. lol And why is it weird and unnecessary? Because you don't approve? lol There are many who think bottle feeding is weird and unnecessary so what you are doing is wrong in others eyes. You have some major mental issues to find a mother feeding her young child in public naturally as weird and unnecessary. But then as someone who prefers to pass of her role and have her own child miss out on the benefits of breast milk I can understand why you are so narrow minded. lol
And for someone to think breastfeeding even at age of 5, 6 or 7 in public is wrong shows that they are sexualising the act.That is twisted. >.<
wolfsongstormspirit: Oh and attached parenting is a catch phrase and it has the unfortunate thing of placing ALL who do it under the one umbrella. Like saying someone from Newcastle is an inbred Bogan.
wolfsongstormspirit: So you try to take the piss out of me for what I say and then do EXACTLY the same thing by saying you are 100% certain you are in the majority. How? Do you know the majority of the population personally? PMSL
Oh and I doubt it has to do with breastfeeding why they aren't reaching milestones because milestones are useless as kids tend to do things at different ages. lol As a parent you should know that and not use so-called proof of 'I have friends...' which is a common tactic for those with no proof. lol
And why would I want to waste time trying to see tits here? You annoyed that I don't want to see yours or something? lol Good thing about the internet. If I want to see good tits there are millions of sites where I can look at them for nothing.
wolfsongstormspirit: Awwwww now you are calling me a perve Queenie. lol Must suck to have your ego so battered because I don't find you appealing. :*
wolfsongstormspirit: Doesn't take much to annoy someone like her who is intolerant and have their head up their arses Nicotina. lol I personally find it funny when they show their ignorance and arrogance.
Queenie The Poo: I'm not annoyed, lol. You got under my skin for a minute when you called me a bad mother but then I clicked and remembered you're a random (wannabe) troll.
But keep going, I like that you think you're right
Nicotina: It does seem as though you are wanting to validate your reasons for bottle feeding, Queenie.
Just an observation.
wolfsongstormspirit: Ah Queenie I see you are using the old argument that people use when they have been shown up for being of low character like you. Just because you have no valid reply to what is said you call me a (wannabe) troll. lol
Oh and I was here a couple of years ago as well for a while so not a random.
Queenie The Poo: No need for that, Nicotina. The topic of this thread is: ''should women breast feed in public or go some where private?'' There are millions of formula fed babies (and now adults) and there is nothing wrong with it at all. I've not once mentioned my reasons, nor will I to anyone here. I don't have a problem with breastfeeding but I am simply talking about discretion in public, and, more recently in this discussion, breastfeeding a 6 year old in public.
How about everyone agree to the following:
A mother will breastfeed a child when she chooses.
A mother will breastfeed a child to the age that she think is suitable.
Everyone else mind their business and carry on.
Walk away from the argument & turn it back to the original topic.
wolfsongstormspirit: But Queenie why should there be discretion for something that mothers do and have done for centuries. No matter what the age of the child why should people dictate where, when and how a mother does what a mother does, nourish her child in all ways.
So please go on about how wrong it is and by that say they are bad mothers and that get all whiny when I say you are by passing off the kid to be fed by formula. lol
SWlNE: Wolfsongstormspirit, discretion is practised. I've seen mothers cover their breast with a cloth while feeding. Even though it is something that is natural, it will depend on the culture of the country. Public breastfeeding in the US will be more discrete than say breastfeeding in some African tribe.
At the end of it nothing you say or anyone else say will really 'dictate' what a mother wishes to do in real life. You can type till your fingers go numb.
wolfsongstormspirit: True. But it is the judging of some that I find funny. After all, it is not about 'discretion' when it is said plain that it shouldn't be. Besides, it is not a sexual act and you see the damn things all over the place so why stress.
Nicotina: Agreed SWINE.
Please note that at no time have I asked Queenie about her choice. Queenie chose to bring her choice to bottle feed into the discussion. I made an observation, nothing more.
As for breast feeding in public... anytime, anyplace, anywhere. If a person is distressed by breastfeeding then they ought to seek professional help.
SWlNE: Wolfsongstormspirit because while that might be an ideal situation, it doesn't take place. There are people who will look at a woman breastfeeding a kid and not see it with respect. Can take a look at a small community as wire and guess that type of behaviour. It's best that women go along with the culture and if it is one that can have respect for a public breastfeeding mother then good but if it is one that doesn't and there are predators then the safest thing is to have some discretion.

Aura: Breast feeding in public is about babies who need to be fed every 2 hours. As a mother, it is nearly impossible to go about your life and NOT get caught in public at feeding time. No matter how well you plan it, things will come up.
But as a child gets older and can regulate blood sugar much better, it becomes a non-issue. And as a toddler, a child doesn't even want to be at the breast for 15 minutes if you're out in public; there is too much to see and too much to do. They want a snack and keep looking around while munching that banana. Also they tend to breastfeed only when they get really tired and are about to sleep.
Planning around one afternoon nap is much easier. There is no need for breastfeeding in public after 2 or so because suddenly it went from the more practical solution to impractical.
That has nothing to do with age, or perves, or bonding or even hover parenting.
wolfsongstormspirit: Predators are not what I am talking about. It is the same kind of people who will look at a same sex couple, a transgender person, a disabled person with disdain because they are not fitting in with the idea of what is 'right'. Besides, Predators from what I have seen actually don't do things because they are sexually aroused in that case. It is about power.
