It is untrue that if you don't have a baby you can't be a breastfeeding advocate. You may not be able to speak from experience, but I hope that my dd will be an advocate for breastfeeding when she is old enough to be. I hope that my dh is an advocate. I hope that my mom and dad are too (even though my mother didn't breastfeed us due to her own ignorance and lack of help). I think we all need to be advocates...and it saddens me that someone didn't even give it a try. That is my problem with formula...if it weren't available for those people, they woudln't be able to choose the unnatural way. I just don't understand it...but that's me. Anyway, I hope that even though there are people out there that haven't yet breastfed a baby, or that never will, who are so inclined to give a breastfeeding mother a comforting nod in an airport, who are so amazed by the glory of breastfeeding to tell an expecting mother that it is possible and normal and wonderful, and who are so in awe of it to ask questions of the nursing mother rather than just continue in their ignorance. That is my hope!
