Lactate dating breast
I remember feeling terrified that if I accidentally achieved let-down during sex this would mean I was a bad mother.I also remember feeling guilty when my midwife told me that the best way to get the milk flowing when expressing was to look at a photo of your baby, whereas for me the most effective thing seemed to be thinking of rather different scenarios.Most contributors were hugely in favour of having the freedom to breastfeed wherever they needed to and wanted employers to be more supportive of women who continue breastfeeding after having returned to work. Of course, this is very much a self-selecting group.Usually Twitter isn’t such a welcoming place for breastfeeding mothers, there being a coterie of tweeters eager to share their horror at having spotted a nursing mother out in broad daylight. #awkward A woman on my Facebook posted a picture of her breast feeding her kid.First, there’s always something suspect when a profit-making company puts on their “sympathetic” face and tries to convince consumers it’s only there to help.Second, while I do believe these issues are important, I wouldn’t be surprised if we’re all now suffering from breast debate fatigue.Sexy breasts are for the men, tucked away with the news and sport.
I worry this can create a form of alienation, and even guilt.Earlier this week Philips Avent, a leading manufacturer of breast pumps, sterilisers and baby bottles, hosted a #breastdebate on twitter.
