What Are Breasts For?

After considering your answer……two things……

A friend told me about an article called Does Breastfeeding Make Women Seem Incompetent? It’s not the best article, but it kind of makes you wonder.

A poem from Natural Parent Network:

Breasts in papers line the shops,
Breasts on billboards, skimpy tops,
Breasts on beaches out on show,
What are breasts for? do you know?
I think that some perhaps forgot,
(The formula companies helped a lot)
Monkeys, cats and even camels,
Are all like us and we’re called Mammals.

Mammal means that milk we make,
On instant tap for babe to take,
So why then now in modern age,
Is bottle feeding all the rage?

Did women’s breasts break over time?
Did breastmilk become less sublime?
Did something better come along?
Maybe nature got it wrong!

Alas the answer’s sadly not,
Nothings changed, not a jot,
At least in terms of women’s breasts,
And doing what they do the best.

The other a poor substitute,
Which evidence does not refute,
Increasing risk of death, disease,
Cancers, cot death, being obese.

For this the parents have to pay,
A pound or two, but every day!
It then needs making, every feed,
At 3am not what you need!

With babies dying every day,
I really think its time we say,
Give women the support they need,
To feed their babies AND succeed!
