In terms of benefits of feeding directly from the breast as opposed to feeding EBM from a bottle, the act of feeding from a bottle rather than a breast can cause mouth formation differences which can cause dental problems, teeth misalignment and sleep apnoea in later life. http://www.brianpalmerdds.com/bfeed_oralcavity.htm    Its not just about the milk.    That said, pumping is an incredible thing to do for your child. For some it is the only way they can feed...
Thankyou Greenmama for your carefully thought out and educated responses. There are lots of LLL Leaders around on here, who try their best by giving up hours of their time every week to try to help women with no recompense. Not every mother is going to be open to hearing evidence based information, it is after all a very different message than we usually get from our doctors and peers. However it is completely necessary, how can we make informed decisions without...
I don't understand how LLL speaking out about the media normalising bottlefeeding is being viewed as an attack on the choices of mothers?    What we see in the media very much influences the choices we make, and we are bombarded with images of bottlefeeding. We need people speaking out against this. 
Oh my goodness. Thats awful.    Here in the UK my then 3 year old daughter needed five cavities filled ( we still don't know why this happened but the decay started before she ever even ate solid food ) but the specialist NHS children's dentist we went to was happy to spend as much time as needed with her until she was happy to sit for it. We had about 3 appointments where she just sat on my lap and they chatted and played with her and examined her teeth while she...
I understand many times its the woman not wanting sex and a partner unfulfilled either way is not fair, but having been the woman desperately wanting sex and having a man uninterested because he had unrealistic expectations of what sex should be I found plenty others in my situation. Thankfully my situation is resolved and things are fantastic between us this last 5 years but that doesn't happen for everyone.
Unfortunately there are many many women out there who have husbands who just don't want to have sex with them much anymore because porn is so much easier and more attractive. When they stop watching porn somehow the desire comes right back.   I'm glad your choices work for both of you, as long as you are being honest with your partner and your actions aren't making her unhappy and you are both satisfied with your frequency and level of activity then great, but you...
Porn gives an incredibly screwed up version of sex, which is mainly that good sex is about looking good (particularly the woman) and seperate from relationship issues. Many women are increasingly more worried about how they look in bed than how they feel and many men are increasingly dissatisfied with their one human partner who has needs of her own and turn to porn as the easy out instead of engaging fully into their marriage/relationship to meet their needs...
Is he watching porn instead of having sex with you?   This can really diminish a man's desire for real sex. Porn is easily available, requires no effort, there is unending variety and its all about him. It can be addictive and lead to men finding it less exciting than they should to actually have sex with a real woman.
Guys do not all do this. If my husband came home that drunk even once without prior approval (and it being a really special occasion or something) then we would have a serious issue. My Dad was an alcoholic and I'm not willing to  live with any sort of alcohol issue. I think with a family history of alcoholism he ought to be being even more careful than an average person.
I'm in the UK, its incredibly rare to hear anyone even mention their child's penis here because we just don't mess with them, they're left intact, unwashed (except for just sitting in the bathwater or normal cleaning during diaper changes), untouched.. and funnily enough problems are very rare.   Even adult intact penises don't need much in the way of cleaning, its only a matter of personal preference and maybe consideration towards a partner, but my hubby doesn't do...
