Ok, this is something that drives me crazy! Whenever I am out in public and I am nursing, if I happen to be sitting next to another person(usually a woman), and we start talking, I inevitably hear a sob story about why she couldn't, or her daughter couldn't, or her sister in law couldn't , or her second cousin twice removed couldn't breastfeed. Usually the sob story is that she didn't make enough milk, her boobs were too big, not big enough, she was on medication, she had to go back to work, her doctor wouldn't let her(?), bla bla bla. Look, I am nursing my baby because she is hungry or needs nurturing. I am not out to say ha ha to all the non nursing moms. Ok, so you didn't breastfeed. I am not going to call the breastfeeding police on you! Why do women do this? Anybody have a story?
