I could just say "enough said" and those of you who have experienced the HELL that is nursing would know exactly what I'm talking about I'm sure, but I have to vent my frustrations...
When I get to the other side, whether it be somewhere way down deep or way up high, I have a bone to pick with God.
First of all, there is a serious design flaw in these things we call 'bosoms'. If the intent was always to have a baby suck milk out of them, shouldn't He have given women rubber (or steel) nipples???
Second, if women have to be pregnant, shouldn't the men have to do SOMETHING? I mean, we get 9 months of discomfort and pain, not to mention labor and delivery - and then weeks of recovery. Couldn't He at least have given the men the ability to lactate?
Third, He's God, He can do anything! So please tell me why when you sacrifice yourself to nurse your baby, do the 'sisters' head South when you're finished? Why couldn't He have engineered them to head North instead? It's not like the 9 months of pregnancy doesn't already send everything else headed South anyway - at least cut us a break SOMEWHERE!
Finally, I realize there is formula and technically, I don't HAVE to do this. But if that is the case then why in heaven's name did God invent lactation specialists to make everyone feel guilty for not doing it? Pick one God, either lactation specialists or formula!
*Mother of the Year Confession* The one and only reason I am even nursing my child is not for the health benefits, not for the increased brain capacity, certainly not for the satisfaction but SOLELY for the rapid weight loss I am experiencing!!!
