She is bat sh*t crazy.
I'm astonished by the level of stupidity.
The fact that this is even a discussion saddens me.

Breastfeeding by a female is indeed NATURAL.
Feeding a child via formula is NOT natural.

Immunity is passed on to the child in this way. Seems natural to me.

Solid question Think! Yes it's natural, But not always easy or intuitive for alot of gals. I did it for as long as I could, I did not enjoy it at all, and stopped when enough was enough. With that being said, my kid is super healthy. I suspect those antibodies did indeed help her overall health and well being. Glad I endured, definitely not for every woman.

Louder ... did you watch the attached video?

My point wasn't whether breastfeeding is fun for the mother, fun for the child or fun for the observers. My point wasn't even im whether or not breastfeeding provides lifesaving nutrients and other goodies that protect the child from harm. The question also avoided the physiological benefits to the mother in helping the uterus to contract after the birth. It wasn't about the benefits to the mother to express the milk, to burn more Valerie's for the recovering mother, or any of her other myriad of benefits.

The question was a very simple one. Is the act of breastfeeding a "natural act"? I note that you chose not to answer the direct question.

Well that was insulting. I do. In fact, I had a discussion on it for Debate and was on the "formula" side. (Sides are randomized) and actually ended up changing from on the fence to pro-breastfeeding. But I'm pro-people choosing between them.

Commie ... I get that you're confused, so I'll toss you a bone to help you. I didn't ask if breastfeeding is "good" or "bad". I asked if it is "natural".

Commie ... and just for you, as it is clear you have issues with staying focused on the topic, I did not ask about formula -- not whether it is good or bad or even whether it is natural. I only asked whether breastfeeding is natural.

Mothers milk is what's best for babies. It's the reason women have breasts.

They did this back in the '70s, too. My mother in law was actually given medication immediately after my wife was born specifically to stop her from producing breast milk because her liberal doctor believed breast feeding was an outdated artifact of a sexist society.

20 years later, liberals changed their story and breastfeeding became the symbol of feminist progress and women demanded the right to breastfeed in public precisely because it was "natural."

It's funny to watch them constantly bounce back and forth between different ways to spin a perfectly normal, healthy part of family life.

MrMilkdud

Wrong again.

Originally, formula was developed out of necessity for mothers who couldn't breastfeed. But in the '20s and '30s, scientists began to believe that they could make a better, healthier product than actual breast milk. By the '60ms they declared that the science was settled and began a push to stop breastfeeding. Formula companies started massive campaigns to sell their product, and finally struck gold by pandering to feminists.

"In the 1960s birth rates began to fall again as a result of the contraceptive pill and the feminist movement. Breasts, which hitherto had had functional connotations, gained esthetic and sexual roles. Feeding bottles were adopted as a symbol of women's liberation."

The movement to return to breastfeeding has found footholds in all sectors. It has been manipulated by the left as a symbol of feminism and women's empowerment, but it's also been embraced by conservatives who prefer self reliance over corporate dependence.
