"I have had a few situations where I have been breastfeeding JJ and someone has said to other people in the room, “She is just [going to] breastfeed him, it is natural, that is what breasts are made for,” etc. That to me is not normalizing breastfeeding. I have felt very awkward in those situations. I don’t think that breastfeeding needs to be defended or explained. If my breastfeeding was ever to be defended, then it would be by me. If a mother is spoon or bottle feeding her baby no one points out that she is doing so, so why should breastfeeding be any different? It is just feeding."
