Amazing Benefits Of Breast Milk
Yesterday while doing my daily web crawl, my eyes landed on a woman with her breast exposed and two kids that looked too old to be sucking on them. The picture looks perverted. The mother seemed to be enjoying it too much. Look at her face. She looks like a freak! This picture screams,”Look at me! Look at what I’m doing! Look at how great I am! It said nothing about the nurturing and bonding received by the child which is what I thought breastfeeding was and is about. I thought it was disgusting and I still do. Not breastfeeding because I was breastfed and know the amazing benefits of breast milk, but the picture of two boys sucking on her boobs just looks disgusting. Today I learned that the mother of the boy and the boy moved in with the boob sharing mother, her husband and her son. Sounds like something else is going on to me. What about you?
Suckle On Her Breast
27-year-old Jessica Anne Colletti from Pennsylvania is the mother in question. People magazine did an interview with Jessica and here’s a bit of what she told them:
“I think people have misinformation and fear. They think it’s gross bodily fluid that shouldn’t be shared or transferred in any way. And I can understand, if people are receiving donated breast milk, they want to have it tested, but if you know the mother directly and she’s healthy, and you know everything about her, it’s a perfectly healthy relationship to have.”
Colletti, from Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, has been babysitting 18-month-old Mateo for her best friend, Charlie Interrante, 24, since he was 5 months old. When Mateo gets hungry, Colletti doesn’t hesitate to let him suckle on her breast – alongside her own 16-month-old son Lucian, if need be. The arrangement works so well that Interrante recently moved in with Colletti and her husband.
“It’s a lot easier for us to all live under the same roof. It develops a routine for the babies together,” explains Colletti. She stresses that living under one roof is about logistics and friendship, adding that she and her husband are in a committed, monogamous relationship. “This works really well for us,” says Colletti.
Friendship And Logistics
I bet it does! The fact that she stressed living under one roof is about “friendship and logistics” tells me something in the milk ain’t clean, pun intended. Wouldn’t be surprised if they’re all sleeping in the same bed sucking on each other in the name of attachment parenting. I don’t have kids but if I did, no other kid would be sucking on my boob and my kid would not be sucking on another mother’s boob; friend or not.
Public Breastfeeding Movement
Women need to stop it with this public breastfeeding movement. Yes, it’s natural! I get it. So is getting my period but you don’t see me walking around stained in blood to prove a point! Women have been breastfeeding since the beginning of time. It’s normal! Nothing new about it! Nothing shameful about it. I don’t know one woman who is ashamed of breastfeeding. Breastfeeding is about nurturing a child while he or she bonds with the mother. Breastfeeding is for mother and kid not for the mother, kid and whosoever will!
Something to think about…
What say you? Would you let a friend breastfeed your child?
