First Time Parents: On Feeding

First Time Parents: On Feeding

I’ll be honest, I’ve considered taking the baby’s milk for other things, such as using it for my cereal, adding to coffee, making mac and cheese… but I imagine the baby would be upset, least of all my wife.

In another issue, people are so passionate on the issue of breast milk vs formula. I’ll admit, breast milk is better, but people are so quick to form judgements on mother’s feeding formula. Maybe it’s their choice, maybe it’s a medical issue, maybe… it’s no one’s business. Watching my wife try to breast feed and her feeling so frustrated in not being able to was devastating, and yes, there were medical complications. People would say, “you have to just keep going, etc”. I likened the experience to telling a person in a wheel chair to just get up and walk, or a person dying to stop being a baby and live.

Overall, if the baby is happy, so be it. Mother’s have a lot to deal with already, and being judgmental isn’t helping. But I digress, I make comics to make people laugh… so yeah.
