Breastfeeding should be viewed as the normal method of feeding human children, just as it is not questioned as the normal way for other mammals to feed their offspring. Books and advertising about babies should include pictures of moms nursing their babies. This can be done without explicit exposure of the breast to avoid inflaming people who have embarrassment issues. When my son was a baby, he went straight from the breast to a sippy cup, then had a baby sister who was nursing. At a local function, he saw a mom bottle-feeding her newborn, and came running with an espression of dismay, " Mrs Smith's breasts must be broken, she is feeding her baby with a bottle thing!" This should be our healthy reaction to artificial feeding!

I understand that breast-feeding is natural but the reality is that it makes people, particularly men, uncomfortable. Urinating is a natural bodily function but that's frowned upon. I'm not saying the two are the same but if we're going to throw out the "it's natural" card then lets apply it all around.

It is a Free?, country and it would be nice for mom and baby,But Usually when too many such as a community becomes involved it only puts pressure on both and adds to lesser freeeom of ones choice iam saying my own opinion!!
