Because of the drivel you published, some women somewhere will choose to formula feed, putting her infant at increased risk of numerous diseases. And because of ignorance like yours, some women will stay home to feed on demand (which is recommended ). Since infants can eat as often as every 45 minutes to an hour, these women will be increasingly isolated and at risk for postpartum depression. Shame on you for spreading this oppressive nonsense.

Come on everyone, let's keep these letters coming and hope this woman at least considers how ridiculous she is being! (is she really a woman, or maybe a man with a pen-name?)

She has to much of a hangup about her body and breastfeeding in general to have nursed 2 children.
I think she is a lier and knows nothing about breastfeeding
|See, she never made it to that point. She stopped during the "Oh, isn't this special and private!" stage.|

|I don't even think men would get too turned on at seeing an exposed breast in public for the purpose of getting attention by that woman breast feeding. If she wants that attention, then let her go be a stripper.|
