Breastfeeding in public – it is unbelievable that in the year of 2013 and in the major city of Sydney, we are having this debate! I want to get to the stage, as a community, that we embrace and support our women who are breastfeeding mothers. For those who are challenged by the ‘breastfeeding concept’, then try this!!
- Smile warmly and encouragingly at any woman you see breastfeeding.
- Congratulate her on what a magnificent job she is doing in raising a healthy new person
- This new person is OUR next generation and they deserve the best start in life!
- We need the next generation to be very healthy!
This is very simple. If you still think that breasts are for sexual pleasure – ONLY! and cannot think beyond that – then avert your gaze or walk away but don’t ever criticise a mother for doing the absolute best job she can – breastfeeding!
