Breastfeeding mothers should be celebrated, not shunned. —- The hypocritical view some people take on breastfeeding

Everyone wants moms to create healthy babies, but, many people don’t want to know how healthy babies are really created. Many people are ashamed to know that healthy babies are created by sucking on their mom’s breasts! SHOCKER!! Those breasts aren’t just for looks folks! They actually have a purpose.

I am so happy to see more and more breastfeeding moms in the news. Yes, women work. Yes, women breast feed. No. The mom and baby should not be shoved into a dirty bathroom to participate in the completely natural act of breastfeeding. Adults don’t eat their meals in a bathroom and neither should a baby. 

Breast were created for better reasons than just to fill out a Hooters’ uniforms, a better reason than to be used in porn, and way more reasons than for most men to only sexualize them.

Women’s breast were created for the main purpose of giving life-saving nourishment to a brand new human being. Breastfeeding a child is one of the most natural events in this world. Without a woman’s sacrifice of hours and hours of her time to feed her child, the human race would not have survived. A woman is literally giving her own vitamins, minerals, and immune properties to another human being. Even when a woman is starving, her breasts will still produce milk to feed her baby, until the mother is actually starved to death. 

It amazes me how many people are against women breastfeeding their babies, especially men. A woman is creating stronger and healthier babies to send out to the world, and the mom becomes healthier also. Not only is this good for a community, but, also great for the nuclear family, and the family budget. Men should be shouting from the mountain tops and encouraging every woman to breastfeed as much as she can.

Breastfeeding has been know to create higher IQs, stronger immune systems, and even better personalities in babies who have been breastfed. The great benefits from breastfeeding aren’t just for the baby, there are also benefits for the mother. According to the Susan G. Komen website, “From the data of 47 studies, mothers who breastfed for a lifetime total (combined duration of breastfeeding for all children) of one year were slightly less likely to get breast cancer than those who never breastfed. Mothers who breastfed for a lifetime total of two years got about twice the benefit of those who breastfed for a total of one year. Mothers who breastfed for a lifetime total of more than two years got even more benefit.”

To the amazement of some men, women can really do it all and have it all. They can work in a very successful career, breastfeed their babies, and continue to look great doing it! Instead of embarrassing a breastfeeding woman, we should celebrate the act as being so incredible natural and deeply profound. Breastfeeding a baby is as natural as breathing. Don’t treat a breastfeeding woman with ugliness,  just thank her, and move on. ‪#‎normalizebreastfeeding‬
