I dont see the jealousy or intimacy aspect of it at all, i think thats making bf a 'private', ''uncomfortable'' act, that fosters the squeemish feelings society has towards it.
I would bf another child, and wouldn't mind if someone fed my dd. It has always been that way, in cultures and tribes, and even with wetnurses, as many have pointed out.
I love and adore my dd, but I dont see bf as a bonding, intimate, private act IN MY OPINION...i would never compare someone feeding my child to another woman being with my dh...(so help her)
I just see it as feeding my kid...I would rather (as should anyone) my child be fed on the breast, with human milk....as it should be.
maybe i'm not as mushy sweet as i should be...but i'm still a new mama, it may take awhile...
mammav, that sucks that even the LC couldnt and wouldnt help to support you and your child with tracking down colostrum or milk...ugh
i never saw like water for chocolate..i'll netflix it, it sounds good already...
