Women only breast feed if there is something in it for them such as losing weight and shopping. That’s it, nothing more nothing less. We can be bought with shopping vouchers and are motivated by money and selfishness and at no point do we think about the health and well being of our baby.
Now, if you believe that you’ll believe anything.. However this is what society an the government are starting to think. What hope as women do we have when attitudes like that are still rife?!.
I really have to hold myself back here and not launch into naughty words, but what the utter fuck?! How in the hell can people bribe you do something that ultimately is YOUR choice? Yes, it IS best for baby but there are so many many factors involved in whether a woman can breast feed or not and no, it doesn’t come down to the simple promise if being paid £200 in shopping vouchers.
We also have the absolute contradiction where people are all for breast feeding but have you ever seen the looks that some people can give you? I’m not saying don’t do it for that reason but just showing the double standards of society.
I really can’t understand how someone could come up with such an offensive “idea” but even worse that it could be allowed out to the public! What about using the money to help homeless, children etc?
I’m absolutely flabbergasted this morning.. How does this make you feel as a parent?
What makes me even angrier is the fact that this news story has gotten more coverage than the woman who killed her young baby due to having Post Natal Depression. I was supposed to be interviewed on the radio this AM but due to a last minute story ie, this one, it was thrown out the window. And they wonder why people go to such desperate measures when suffering? Shame on you, the media because it is you who are part of the problem and stigmas.
