If a woman chooses to breastfeed her baby, her baby usually needs to be feed every two to three hours (for the first few months) . It is important to feed a baby when they are hungry so they develop a good routine.
..so I feel I have two choices after my baby is born...
1. Imprison myself at home and depend on others to come to my house with food and entertainment. Limit my time outside to an hour at a time confining myself to a limited radius of my house so I don't..god forbid..offend anyone when I breastfeed.
2. Go outside as normal and breastfeed whenever the baby needs food even if it makes people uncomfortable - ignoring comments about how unnatural and inappropriate it is. (A colleague in work bitched about the horrible experience of watching some woman breastfeed her baby on the tube in London this weekend. It is not the first time I have heard comments like that from an Irish person.)
I think the hardest part of taking option two would be traveling on public transport. I really need to get myself a car asap.
