The Right to Breastfeed

Posted on August 30, 2015 at 6:03 PM

As more and more women gain knowledge about the benefits of breastfeeding for both mom and baby, more women are understanding that when the baby wants/needs to eat, the baby needs to be fed, no matter where the MotherBaby happens to be at the time.  The Pope has famously implored mothers to feed their babies (link HERE)...it's time for the rest of the world to catch up.
 
In part due to the hypersexualization of the female body, breastfeeding in public became taboo.  Women of the 21st century are reclaiming the right to feed their Sweet Peas according to nature’s design.  Nursing in Public (“NIP”) is becoming more and more common as more women refuse to succumb to the pressure that breastfeeding is a home activity. We are gradually normalizing NIP when we respond to our children's hunger cues or emotional cues that breastfeeding can fix, even if we happen to be out of the house or car at the time we are reading these cues.  (Yes, I'm guilty of sitting in a hot car to feed my Sweet Pea so I don't offend someone else's sensitivities.  By Sweet Pea#2, that little concern went away as I gained more confidence to feed wherever we happened to be at the time).
 
It’s not about flaunting our breasts, or being disrespectful to religious beliefs.  It is all about basic mammal biology: after pregnancy, birth mothers lactate; after birth, babies are fed from mammary glands.  The MotherBaby dyad remains intact when they are responding to each other, and one of those signals is the hunger cue.
 
I have written several posts about breastfeeding in public – here are some links for you to explore if you want to read more:

I hope that one of these posts speaks to you and lends you the confidence to respond to your Sweet Pea the next time they need to breastfeed and you are out of your comfort zone.  Your Sweet Pea will thank you :)
