Thinking about making a comment -- or asking a question -- about breastfeeding to your sister, your BFF, or the lady across from you at the coffee shop? For the love of all the nursing mamas in the world, read this first.
[MUSIC] 7 Things Not to Say to a Breastfeeding Mom. "I didn't breastfeed and my kids are fine." That's fantastic. But your choice has literally zero to do with mine. "Would you be more comfortable if you covered up?" No. But obviously, you would be. If you don't want to see it, don't look. "Isn't your child a little old to be nursing?" Aren't you a little old to be asking none-of-your-business questions? "WOW! Your boobs are huge!" Try the never-miss "You look great!" instead. Moms love that one! "Has your partner tasted your milk?" Please don't fetishize my liquid gold. And: It's none of your business. "Feeding on demand will spoil your baby." Spoiled? Nope. Nurtured? Yes. "You stopped nursing already?" You did Not. Just. Say. That.
