I chose not to breastfeed and I feel no need to justify or explain that decision.
But what I will say is that decision had nothing to do with my thinking it ‘creepy’.
Now in a deliberately provocative article in Mother and Baby magazine, one of the editorial team has admitted she found it ‘a little creepy.’
Whatever you may think about breastfeeding, I think to suggest something which is, after all, completely natural is ‘creepy’ is inflammatory and, when you’re aimed at thousands of new mums, irresponsible as well.
I’d love to know what you think.
