Not sure how to even word it. I began working at my current job in April (about 5 mos preggo). I quickly became friends with one of my coworkers who also happened to be about 5 mos preggo. We were both planning to bf. She stopped bf a couple months ago. I didn't. I am very proud of myself, but I don't know how to act around her. I hadn't worried about it until today. I just spoke of it when I wanted, pumped when I needed, acted like it was just another part of parenting, because to me, it is.
Today, another girl who works with us came in and informed us that she is pregnant. Of course, I took this opportunity to ask her if she had considered how she would feed her baby. I made the comment, "breast is best". I honestly never meant it in a negative way toward my friend. I am glad my friend even bf for that long, I also wish she had longer, but I haven't told her that, nor have I tried to imply it. My friend told our boss, who is pretty close with all of us (as far as bosses go). So, the boss had to talk to me about it because he has a certain work atmosphere to maintain. He asked me to not mention anything bf or pumping related to her. I feel that it is all very stupid really. Bf is such a huge and important part of my life, how am I supposed to just leave it out of every single conversation between us and still remain good friends? I guess we weren't that great of friends.
She made her decision. She should be satisfied in it, and if she isn't she should do something about it. I don't feel that it should be my problem. Seriously, if she regrets it, she knows that she can relactate, although it would be a lot of work. She even considered it before.
Why can't people just grow up?
