Well said Petunia. No matter how easy it might seem, in my opinion..and in my life...breastfeeding is a big sacrifice. Many many of my friends and acquaintances have had babies recently, and like you said, have been able to leave their babies for long periods of time to do whatever they want. At social gatherings or family gatherings, the baby would just be passed around and who ever had it by feeding time would just stick in a bottle. In my case, I would run upstairs and (in the beginning) struggle getting my lo to latch on, and then stay on, and sometimes deal with his frustration if my letdown was too slow, or not having enough milk...dont even get me started on how hard it was to be out of a house.
Anyway, its much much easier now but my point is that it is hard, and it is a sacrifice, but I am still happy to be breastfeeding and will continue to do it for each of my babies
