The thread on breastfeeding in public got me thinking about something.... We were told in our prenatal classes that a nurse or lactation consultant has to check our latch before we are allowed to take our breastfed babies home after delivery. The thing is, I am very insecure about my breasts and I have issues with them being touched. I'm less intimidated by my lady garden being seen by doctors and nurses! I don't want anybody to bother me with checking my latch.... in my humble opinion, they can see if the baby is getting enough nutrition by the amount of soiled diapers! I have watched enough videos and read enough breastfeeding manuals that I feel confident in my own abilities. If I need help, I will ask but I don't want it forced on me! I expressed this concern to my mother.... My mother then confided in me that when she had me she was breastfeeding in the hospital when a very masculine female nurse came in and pretty well man-handled her breasts. She said that the nurse did not ask permission, she just roughly grabbed mom's tender breasts and shoved her nipple in my mouth. It was very violating for her. Anybody else having similar concerns?
