My aunt called me just a bit ago to tell me my cousin had her babyI asked how labor went (36 hours, ended in csection)hows the baby, wonderful, 8lbs 12oz, 22 in long. How is Cousin doing? Tired. Yeah I'll bet. Has she tried nursing yet? "Oh, no...she's much too tired and the baby is WAY to big! No way she could breastfeed.": Oh, well there is still time, she can try once she gets some rest. then Auntie says to me "Now, Renae, I understand YOU are breastfeeding James still, but it's not for everyone! Cousins husband missed out on feeding his first daughter a bottle because his wife was selfish and only wanted to breastfeed. Cousin isn't going to be like that. Husband is feeding his son a bottle right now. Quite frankly, I'm surprised that you could be so selfish and not let Josh feed his son!"then she had to go call other people
I tried SOOO hard! I sent her the 101 Reasons To Breastfeed, I sent her "So Thats What They're There For!" I emailed her the LLL meetings in her area (she lives in Tennesse, I'm in Iowa) I tried SOOO hard to get her to breastfeed. I failed...
