Lactivism

Why do I continue to fight the good fight re: nursing? Because of doctors who do crap like this:

My friends OB (I don't know his name) told her that breastfeeding was "3rd world" and he does not recommend his patients do it.
My friend posted that on her blog about one of her friends, and I just about jumped through the computer to strangle the unnamed OB. GRR...

How is that even possible with all the research? I don't get it. What a quack OB! I bet he was 500 years old!

I watched a TV birth show once (big mistake) where the mom was heavily medicated, and the OB said, as the mom was immobile, looking at the ceiling, draped in sterile mats, with her legs high in stirrups and her bottom perfectly positioned for the doctor (not for the mother or the baby), "Ah, a civilized birth, none of the screaming and moving around nonsense. This is how we do it in America." I love OBs, but there are a few rouge ones out there that ruin it for the rest of them.

Making noise and moving while birthing - that is SOOOO third world...

yeah there has been scientific evidence that proves that breast feeding helps an infant in so many ways other than bonding with their mother it is ridiculous for a doctor to make such a nieve statement
