    Gah is anyone else watching big fat gypsy christenings?

    Whilst I completely respect everyone's choices to ff or bf, calling bfing "disgusting" and asking how a woman can "do that infront of the world" riles me.

    Its perfectly natural and just enables this stigma against women feeding in public that it took me a long time to get over. Its just pure ignorance.

    I would never dream of saying people who ff are disgusting, it's a mother's perogative to feed her baby in whatever way she feels fit without the judgement of others.

    Im proud to have breastfed and I hope all you ladies are too.

    Sorry, rant over

    Xx

    It is so frustrating to hear comments like that, especially on TV when there is no differing view offered. And yet if someone went on saying how great bfing is, or that ff was awful they would be jumped on. Ugh, double standards!

    It annoyed me to. What I can't understand is that formula hasn't been around that long so what did the older generations of travellers feed their babies?

    I felt sad that they had that opinion. Sounds like there is a lot of pressure to FF in their community.
