Because adults don’t drink the milk straight from the cow. We don’t want to see some fugly baby sucking on a boob, i.e. a sex toy.
Although I favour lactation rooms. If you’re going to breast feed, do it out of sight. It’s a great idea.
So, breastfeeding is gross. But not when done out of sight.
@mad2physicist first you really should keep your mouth shut or as it is here your fingers off the keyboard, you really make yourself out to be quite an idiot. A “boob” is not a sex toy it is designed to feed our children that my dear village idiot is why they produce milk. It’s not gross it’s natural. I breastfed both of my children, they are healthier for it too. You need to take you backwoods thinking self and “get schooled” on the truth of breastfeeding. There is nothing wrong if a woman does it in public, however I do believe that it should be done discreetly say with a nursing blanket. So keep your idiotic comments to yourself…Thx
The lactation rooms in offices are typically for pumping. Most women don’t bring their infant to work. And pumping, of course, is what people who don’t want to breastfeed in public tend to do, so there’s nothing at all “gross” here.
I mean, if you don’t pump … it’s gonna come out anyway. And that’s not very pretty.
my mom breastfed my brother at a cast party for a play i did in 4th grade… i was mortified. however when i had my daughter and we were out and she was hungry, i didnt give a shit and pulled my boob out in public.
Really chelle? Because I AM a lactation consultant and I would absolutely say that breastfed babies are healthier… by far than formula fed babies. And so does the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Nation Cancer Institute. I’m so sorry that you being a selfish whore got in the way of you providing the best for your child/ren and now you search for someone to get on your “this smelly disgusting artificial shit in a can is just as good as what was intended for my child” kick.
I love threads like this. I’d have to agree with TippyDippy on this one. Natural, but far from beautiful.
Also, lactation room sounds silly. What’s wrong with a breast feeding room?
And backwoods? That belongs in a post, not a comment. Backwoods…
I hope you’re not a lactation consultant because if you are your viewpoint is disgusting. Is it healtier to breastfeed your child? Probably. Is it always possible? No. It is so incredibly unprofessional of you to assume that someone is a “selfish whore” because they couldn’t breastfeed their child. Hey dumbshit, what if they couldn’t because THEY WERE WORKING so they could put food on the table? I’m all for breastfeeding, but I also understand when people can’t. I really, really hope you get exposed for your one-sided, naive, thick-headed nature.
Only 3% of women are actually physically unable to breastfeed. The rest are selfish decisions. Many women (myself included) work (to put food on the table) and still manage to selflessly provide for our children (due to in part such awesome things like lactation rooms). It sounds to me like you are also one of those selfish mothers who won’t put her child’s HEALTH before her own insignificant wants. Let me ask you a question: If you could become pregnant and then transfer the fetus to a machine that would do a semi sufficient job of “growing” your child for the rest of the pregnancy, would you? Keep in mind that the “pros” of this wonderful machine would be the avoidance of all unpleasant parts of pregnancy (giving up activities, the symptoms, stretch marks and labor itself!) but the tradeoff would be that your child will never be as healthy, developed, or intelligent as they could be if they had grown naturally in their mother. Sure they are a few women who would actually benefit from this (such as the women who’s bodies are physically unable to carry a child to term) but the rest of the people who would sign up to use this hypothetical machine would be doing so selfishly at risk to their child. So, yes, I am justified in calling her (and you) a selfish whore.
actually “youareallfckuingnuts” you would be a selfish whore and a b*tch besides, for being so judgmental. I really hope you don’t treat the people that come to as clients like sh*t if things don’t work out because that turns people off quicker than anything else. I had to use formula for my child per physician recommendation because he was on strict calorie counts so screw you. It doesn’t work for many reasons not just selfish ones.
youareallfckuingnuts – I think you’re quite repulsive. I’m a supporter of breastfeeding (and I don’t think it should be hidden away like its something shameful) but there are women who are unable to breastfeed and, for many of them, that is quite upsetting. Attitudes like your’s are awful and counterproductive.
The fact that both my children were formula fed does not make me selfish or a whore, thanks. In fact, with my 2nd baby, not breastfeeding was the most selfless decision I’ve ever made because I desperately wanted to be successful at breastfeeding. But when your baby is in the NICU due to “poor feeding”, you will do whatever you can to ensure that he does feed well so he can come home. Both my children were born pre-term, and as a lactation consultant I’m sure you know the difficulties these babies have feeding. So please get off your self-righteous kick and be a bit more understanding, yeah?
As for the whore comment, I would just like to say that the only man I’ve ever slept with is also the father of my 2 formula-fed babies. So now I’m gonna be judgmental like you and say that’s probably far less than you, thus making you the whore, not me.
@ youareallfckuingnuts, you’re a breastfeeding Nazi. I met bitches like you at the hospital with your little cult-ish “breast is best breast is best” chants! What is best, is that mother and baby are happy and if a mother is happier with formula, than the baby will be just fine. FYI I breastfed for 2 years (and was very happy to get my body back)and I didn’t do it to put “child’s HEALTH before my own insignificant wants”, I did it because it’s easier. Not having to get up and make a bottle in the middle of the night, appeals to my greed. More sleep = happier mummy. Oh and btw I also co-slept because it was easier!!
@youareallfckuingnuts – I breastfed my children and they are healthy, but I know women who couldn’t and their kids are just as healthy. Being self rightous doesn’t help anyone.
p.s before formula they had wet nurses for ppl who could afford it and the those who couldn’t gave their kids things like carnation milk,at least now ppl have a better option.
youareallfckuingnuts, I REALLY like your bullshit 3% statistic. What are the chances of you providing your source? Because it’s obviously made up.
You and your opinionated, superior-as-fuck peers are prime reasons why no one likes lactation consultants. You may have breast-fed your children, but I shudder to think that your closed-minded opinions are being shared with your offspring. Who is doing the most damage to the next generation, do you think?
I too doubt that youareallfckuing nuts is a lactation consultant. Lactation consultants are pro-breastfeeding, sure. But any consultant worth their weight in breast milk would not be such a judgmental, angry little bitch. My formula fed baby is absolutely thriving and every doctor and child health nurse that has seen her is astounded at how well she’s doing. And for what it’s worth, I was unable to breastfeed. Completely bone dry, not even a drop of colostrum. And I don’t mind, because formula is a-okay by me. So shove your tiny-minded attitude right up your ass, you sanctimonious piece of shit.
youareallfckuingnuts- what about adopted babies that have no choice but formula? I was a formula baby, fyi the worst illness I ever had was a regular flu. Infact I can go three years (so far) without catching the common cold. If I was raised at him with my mom so she can breastfeed me, I’m pretty sure my circumstances would be far worse. I support breast feeding as much as I do formula. Think of the whole picture.
Trust me, chelle, Nork Nazis like youareallfuckingnuts exist, and they’re onto new mothers before the cord is even cut. A friend of mine went through hell being constantly chided by nurses in the hospital because she chose not to breastfeed her newborn. Most of them were dried up old hags who had never had a kid of their own. Sure, tit is tops, but formula does very nicely, too. And some of the most healthy people I know never got near a bosom as a babe.
Tit vs. Teat is such a boring argument. The fat chick with no pants on in public doesn’t even rate a mention?
Short story. I have two kids, one breast fed. one could not be breast fed because I was in the ICU in critical condition for three weeks after birth. One has asthma and had constipation issues until she was 11. Other one nothing but a cold, knock on wood. Guess which one was breast fed? Nope! the with asthma and digestive issues was breast fed. There goes that theory. I am a selfish whore also for totally different reasons. Go finger ur self.
Youareallfuckingnuts is an idiot. I’d bet good money that AMAZING parent takes regular trips to McDonalds, pizza places, etc and probably contributes to child obesity yet heaven forbid something unnatural go into her baby’s body! Oh I LOVE the pompous asses that want to pat themselves on the back for popping a tit out between soaps.
STFU! No one wants to hear your self righteous formula talk. Yeah that person is a jerk for saying what they said but this is a facebook parody website, not a “I feed my baby formula and I’m proud” website. I don’t give a fuck if you breastfeed in public or you feed your kid the “all powerful formula”. Just don’t get pissed if people look at you when you breastfeed in public because it was your decision to do it in the first place. I’m all for it, I don’t mind titties but goodness, am I tired of reading all this holier than thou shit about formula feeding.
It HAS been proven that breastfed babies ARE healthier. That doesn’t mean ALL breastfed babies are healthier, it just means in general. Breastfeeding is the preferred way to feed babies (trust me, just got a shit ton of pamphlets on it), but that is not always realistic or possible. Feed your damn babies the way you want, but don’t knock someone else for their choice. Their child, their business.
It is obvious that youareallfckingnuts is not a lactation consultant. No legit LC would ever spout the bad information and insane judgments that this asshole is spewing. I am very close with two women who couldn’t breastfeed due to different medical/ health problems, and they felt bad about it, thanks in no small part to judgmental asshats like our marginally retarded, self-righteous guest commenter here, who has to lie about being an LC to give her idiot opinions the weight of legitimacy. Go suck a diseased dick you stupid braying judgmental cunt.
