    Default Breast feeding

    I saw this article in the Houston Chronicle. It's about Obama wanting federal employees (women mostly) to be able to take care of their breast feeding needs while at work.

    http://blogs.chron.com/momhouston/20...feeding_1.html

    So...to breast feed or not to breast feed?

    Do any of you get grossed out if you're somewhere and a woman breast feeds her kid?

    Should an employer allow a woman to use her break time to pump?

    By the way...the photo attached to that article I posted is pretty hot.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    No.

    it's her break, why not.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    for my wife's sanity. If you breast feed you have two options: (1) pump like a madwoman all day or (2) be awake for every single feeding. That's really f-ing hard. I know right now for us it would mean my wife would never sleep more than 2 hours at a time since the twins need to be fed every 3 hours. Expecting my wife do a feeding at 11:30 pm then be up at 2:30 am and again at 5:30 and then I leave for work and she's on her own with 3 kids. A bit much to ask. So much easier for us to both bottle feed at 11:30 and then I sleep from 12-5 and she sleeps from 12-2:30 and then 3-8.

    I agree Mike. My wife tried with both of ours... she actually pumped some extra which I would use for some of the night feedings. It sort of worked out.

    On the lighter side...NSFW

    Milk in your coffee?
    A little more volume in the headphones please.

    did she need to pump out her milk and dispose of it? I've been told that some women produce so much that it just doesn't go away...that they need to pump it even if they don't plan on breast feeding.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    I'm honestly not sure. We've never gotten that far along in the process. She started to pump in the hospital and we quickly came to the realization that trying to do with twins would put us both in a mental hospital.

    so to summarize...for you guys it was a matter of convenience. It would have been a nightmare to try and breast feed them exclusively given the demands of feeding twins so often. Is that correct?

    Will she supplement the formula you guys give them with natural breast milk or no?
    Stay out of it, dude.

    mostly convenience I'd say. With our son she tried to breast feed and she couldn't get enough milk so we supplmented. With the twins, it's all about convenience. Hard enough with a 3 year old and two newborns - no need to make it harder.

    Is there as much debate about breast milk vs formula up there as there seems to be down here?

    not sure what it's like down there. Up here, the hospitals really do push breast feeding but I'm guessing that most women don't breast feed. It's probably better to breast feed but you need to counter this with wanting to have a sane mother. I wasn't breast fed nor was my wife so we don't have an issue with not doing it with our kids.
