    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    as long as he doesn't make baby-formula illegal, or adds a sin-tax to it.

    I guess he wants to leave the public stage without people suggesting he should run a third party candidacy for president.

    New York is sure lucky to have someone as wise as Bloomberg. Perhaps he can set up weekly menus and make sure supermarkets are only allowed to sell the stuff needed in his recipes.

    Good for him. Mother-child relationships are vital for healthy growth and development.

    Oh don't be silly - after 9 months of pregnancy and birth he thinks that SEEING a container or formula is the determining factor.

    TRUST me - every mother has thought about it, developed her views and ideas, and made the decision BEFORE that moment.

    It's pathetic that people think otherwise - what are we, retards who don't even know we're pregnant or our role as a mother?

    Women choose not to breastfeed for a variety of reasons . . . one thing has to do with the sexualization of the breast, I think. For me - it was beyond crazed to take what was just a sexy plaything and then actually *do* something with it other than that. It was a disgusting, really - made my stomach turn - made me feel like a pedophile when I thought about it.

    That transition can **** with your head - a lot.

    I never did get over it (my emotions about it) I always felt like that. I avoided sex when I was nursing as much as possible because it was just over the line and ****ed up. I nursed all of my kids - it took me to child #3 to take it further than 2 months because I wanted my sex life back. It never felt normal to be ok with them being sex-things and nature-things at the same time.

    They don't prepare you for those mixed emotions and thoughts. . . they just assume you'll transition and accept it.

    Guys won't understand that - they'll never have any part of their bodies that goes from serving one purpose and holding one appeal to being a complete other altogether. . . and then suffering the social-negative consequences when they have difficulty transitioning. It's difficult enough just in itself - the public-chastising doesn't help anyone.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I'm not sure if that's what's going on. It's more of a tradition thing. If mothers don't see formula around over time while attending hospitals, society will become less prone to avoid breast feeding.

    Eh...

    ...people worry about pedophilia too much these days. Love is love, and love is a big picture. Worrying about exploiting immaturity is another thing though.

    It might seem "sloppy", but it makes evolutionary sense for men to desire boobs. Men who don't wouldn't be selecting mates who can optimally nourish their children. Furthermore, men who don't wouldn't have an optimal attitude towards nourishing children.

    Hide? when all three of my kids were born, my wife was asked by the doctor what her preference was.

    I had assumed this was standard practice.

    No - it doesn't make sense - the sex appeal of the breast. It makes no sense at all . . . not when it ****s with someone's head to the point of them being a freak while struggling with conflicting views and negating their other instincts and compulsions. It is illogical.

    We're not logical creatures - humans. We're all sorts of ****ed up.

    And simply saying 'it's ok' or 'it's natural' doesn't actually make it 'ok' as far as one's thought processes go - it's not that easily overridden. It takes an immense amount of logical reasoning with yourself to force yourself to override your thoughts and feelings about it.

    And I don't know about other mothers - But I was never exposed to the concept of formula feeding - and when I learned about formula being a healthy option I was relieved.

    So other reasons: pain - it can be excruciatingly painful, it doesn't 'come naturally' - you always need someone to show you what to do and help you out ergo if you don't have anyone to help you're less likely to go through with it. And the inconvenience of it. It limits your life in so many ways like you're imprisoned. It can be a very depressing and embarrassing inescapable situation to be in.

    I never recovered from the limitations - when my daughter was nursing I was stuck in traffic for hours. Had to feed her on the side of the road in the front seat with baby blankets draped in the windows. My two other kids started fighting and arguing - it was an intollerable situation and I couldn't do anything about any of it. I just sat, nursed and cried . . . and eventually a police officer knocked on the window to tell me to move off the side of the road - I wanted to just die. I never went anywhere without a formula bottle after that.

    That doesn't sound like a nursing problem. It sounds like a socializing problem. Your family and community weren't around to help you or help you feel included.

    It also sounds like you were feeding the problem. If bad thoughts are in your head, then you shouldn't be thinking. Just acknowledge that whatever is happening is beyond your control, so it doesn't count.
