Thread: No breastfeeding causes bullying?

    Arrow Re: No breastfeeding causes bullying?

    i really appreciate all of the great feedback. I do feel much better. I started thinking about how BF is nurturing, loving, caring, intimate, etc and wondered if somehow maybe there was a connection to personality/confidence later in a child's life that could result in bullying. Obviously, it is not that significant.

    It's funny how much something as simple as a message on T-shirt can affect you.

    Thanks again everyone.

    LOL DD1's idea is doing / eating whatever it is faster before the other child can get there / have any.

    i think it's one of the most important things we activists can remember- that we want to support moms in their ability to nurse and help them meet their nursing goals, and we have to be so, so careful not to drive people away with a high-handed approach. Or t-shirt, as the case may be. It's just such a sensitive subject for so many moms.

    IMO that's the kind of statement that gets people's back up about "breastfeeders". Throwing those kind of statements around when there is not well documented scientific proof, just makes people think negatively about breastfeeders "preaching" about what children are going to be like if they don't breastfeed. I have breastfed all my children into the "extended" period and am obviously super pro-Breastfeeding BUT I personally don't feel like T-shirts like that help the cause!
