Get over my boobs.

January 25, 2012

What IS she doing?!?

I have no shame.  None at all.  If my son is hungry and needs a snack/ meal/ comfort/ whatever…I will give him what he wants.  More than not, that requires me to “expose” myself.

I do it gladly.  I do it without hesitation.  I do it without a cover.

I breastfeed.

My son isn’t screaming.  He is happy.  He will smile and wave at you when he is done with his “boba”.

He (generally) won’t make a fuss.  Nor, is he  “one of those damn toddler brats”.

But, somehow, what I do is “gross” and “disgusting” and should be kept away from public eyes.

I will “scare children” and cause “uncomfortable discussions”.

But, I do not care what you think.  Or, how my feeding my son is somehow not acceptable.  I will do it as long as I see fit.  And yes, when I nurse him (even in public) the world is shut out of my mind.  The only thing that matters is him, and what HIS needs are.

Let me tell you this: if you do not like, approve of what I am doing…don’t look.  Don’t criticize me for my parting choice.  I do not look down on you because you use formula.  Or that you choose to roll your eyes and impatiently try to deal with a temper tantrum of toddler proportions.

You do your thing.  And I’ll do mine.

Instead of looking at me and thinking to yourself: “Ugh.  Why is she doing that where everyone can see?”  You should probably ask: “Why does this matter to me?”  Maybe then people can understand to mind their business and stop focusing on my boobs.
