Breastfeeding Stamp by SailorX Breastfeeding Stamp by SailorX
If you look through my favs, you'll see I've been collecting stamps. I tried to look up breastfeeding or baby stamps and there's Barely any!

But I do strongly support Breastfeeding. I mean STRONGLY. It freaks out Cliff I'm teaching the girls no to use baby bottles for their dolls. Never to early for essentials to healthy grandchildren ;)

I unforunately was unable too because my medication goes into my breastmilk and both girls broke out in full-body rashes. And Kessah was Lactose intolerant and had to have soy formula till she was 7 months old. So I can't be completely anti-bottle. But it'll show up in a new stamp

I'm planning to make a few more breastfeeding, baby and breast stamps

This is a great picture. I love the softness of the light around Mom and Baby.

This should not just apply to the fetishists though...my mom did the same for me. Too bad a lot of people here probly have that fetish. All the same, good stamp

Couldn't agree more!
I breastfed my son for a year and my daughter even longer

This is one of the very reasons why I am so eager to have a baby. I've been having breast-feeding fantasies lately and I REALLY want to do it! If you ask me it's one of the best things in the world!

* Instant immunization
* Instant bonding
* Helps Mama's womb "deflate"
* Prevents breast cancer
* Cleaner
* Quicker (one of the reasons why I'd like to keep my baby in bed with me, like my mom did. If s/he gets hungry, I can just nurse them right away without having to walk across the room four times)

If you read Romeo and Juliet? If so, did you notice that Juliet seemed to have a better relationship with the Nurse than her own mother? That's because her mother didn't breast-feed her. The Nurse did. Hence the better relationship between the "servant and master" than the mother and daughter.

Breastfeeding is one of the things that kept me from being adopted! I totally support it. :)

Awesome stamp! It is too bad that there aren't a lot around. Hopefully that'll change as more women realize the benefits.

Oh, FYI on the extended breastfeeding stuff (previous comments)...a lot of women practice child-led weaning. Breastmilk still gives a lot of benefits to older children...it's certainly a lot better than cow's milk. That and the lady who nurses her older children is definitely in the minority. Most toddlers lessen their nursing to a few times a day and more as a comfort thing.

Not being snarky or anything, just trying to clear up the misconception that it becomes unhealthy or serves no purpose. :)

Breastfeeding is good for the baby (most of the time) but is it unhealthy to breastfeed a child up until they are around 8-9? I saw this one mom on tv that does it and i wonder if the children will become dependent on it when they get older ,since they never stopped. What do you think?

I saw that too. Its unhealthy to nurse a child over 2 years old. If I were able to breastfeed, I'd probably stop when they can handle solid food with ease ( 10-15 months)

Actually, it is never unhealthy for a child to breastfeed as breastmilk changes to suit the growing childs needs. As mammals we are actually supposed to breastfeed to about 5-7 years old. :)

Although it does look kinda weird. (But their whole diet doesn't just consist of breastmilk at that age - they would eat solids too!)

Just remember that breastfeeding never looses it's benefits :meow:

It's sad that your little one was lactose intolerant! That makes it a bit difficult! It's great to see a breastfeeding support stamp though :D
