Mother Nature's Birth Control

People who receive WIC (food stamps) from uncle sam should have to breast feed their babies UNLESS there is documented evidence that they are or have been a drug addict.

I know I sound like Ru$h L!mbaugh and the president of la leche league had a kid, no?

But really.
Breast feeding is:
1. free
2. keeps you from ovulating for about 10 months on average
3. is a pain--so you might just decide that you don't want to have to keep doing it over and over again...so you might be really pro-active in preventing more bebes.

I do get ticked when I think of how much formula costs, and how people on WIC get it free--not that I would want any anyway --but--I also don't want to have to pay for others to have the convenience of feeding it to their babes for FREE..ALL THE WHILE MAKING MORE BABES.

On a related note...

Yesterday at the peds office I was TOLD that the next time I came in I should nurse the baby in the special designated nursing area (for which there was no sign).
Not asked to. I had already been invited to--but by then I had my titty out already doing it.
The reason: Just in case any teenage boys came in...oooohhh
They better be glad none came in--b/c if they would have I was going to stand up, squirt milk on them and let them see my salami sized nipples (in other words scare the hell out of them).
Good lord!

Now back to WIC--if all those mothers had to nurse their babies too...well, I bet there would be much less stigma attached to the whole being a mammal thing...

you know?

Hey mama! :)
Yes. I wrote all the crude stuff.
No, I am not taking it down. ;).

LOL! Which was cruder, t!tty or salami size? :) Good grief, as if you can't be discreet. No one would even know what you were doing necessarily. And hey, don't forget the potential weight-loss benefit from b'feeding! It could be a health revolution for the obesity epidemic! I heard last wk that the new "hip" trend here is to only pump, not actually nurse. So baby gets benefits, but mom is not inconvenienced? Lactating w/out the sweet snuggling? No thanks. I stared at the mom that told me this one...

LOL! If someone told me that I HAD to go nurse in a special area I would have flipped them my laleche league middle finger:)

Maybe if a teenage boy were to see your salami size nipple he would be less likely to have sex...maybe

You KNOW how I feel about this post--I LOVE IT!!!! But remember, some of us start to ovulate earlier than others despite E-X-T-E-N-D-E-D Bfing!! (4 months for me and I nursed until 32 months!)

Hope all is well!
