    Many women can't breast feed because they are too old or they have flat or inverted nipples or something. My mother was in her 40's when she had me and I was not breastfed. What should women like that do?

A cruel joke.

    You have children or child, I have none. Would that put me higher on the echelon of quality? Just curious.

    This is only a guess, but if a woman cannot breast feed, would it be possible for her to obtain breast milk for her baby from another woman? Or would that not be good due to the fact that each woman's breast milk is unique and genetically best only for her own kids?

    (I know this is going off topic from the original topic of this thread but I'm just curious).

    Good point, Vlad.

    Historically, there were women who would keep their breast milk up and use it to feed the children they looked after. They were referred to as Wet Nurses. Usually, upper class women who were unable (or often just too lazy) to breastfeed their own children would employ lactating women of lesser means to do the breastfeeding.

    Also, I just read this recently, Germany has started a program where lactating women can sell their extra milk to others who cannot breastfeed for some reason. Some women cannot produce enough milk to satisfy the child and some others produce more than their baby needs. This had been done in the past, but hasn't been around for decades. It's starting up again.

    Also, as the child transitions from breastfeeding to solid foods, the mother usually has milk left over and that can be quite painful. Lactating breasts that are not expressed at regular intervals become very sore and tender. Pumping the extra milk out for another baby to have is a way to relieve that pain (and in Germany, make a few extra Euros).

    I'm glad you brought that up. Breast milk from any healthy, disease and infection free white woman would be preferable to formula and cow's or goat's milk, imo. Woman who choose to breastfeed their children and others should not consume any alcohol, illicit drugs, and some prescription drugs, amongst other diet restrictions. From the very moment of conception and continuing until the child is no longer breastfeeding, whatever the mom consumes, the baby consumes. That's not always true, as there are some substances that do not appear to penetrate the placenta and milk ducts, but one is better safe than sorry.

    A small pertcentage of children are allergic to both breast milk and cow's milk. In that case, a combination of formula and goat's milk might work.

    P.S. to cosmo: I was not referring to you.

    Breastfeeding at least four months has four important benefits over formula/bottle-feeding:
    • Breast milk contains immune-boosting nutrients that a child cannot get from cow's milk or formula. Studies show that breastfed children have fewer allergies and childhood diseases.
    • The IQ of breastfed children is shown to be, on average, 5 IQ points higher than their non-breastfed peers. They have fewer learning disabilities and behavioral problems as well.
    • A recent study conducted in the UK showed that breastfed children, on average, lived five years longer than their non-breastfed peers.
    • Breastfeeding increases the emotional and psychological bond between the mother & child. A child must attach to and trust his mother or he'll have difficulty finding and maintaining 'normal' adult relationships.


    An important point to remember is that these benefits mentioned above are noticed only in children who were breastfed for at least four months.

    During breast reduction surgery, the nipples and aeriola (sp?)are actually cut completely off and then reattached later. Obviously, they arent able to reattach them exactly the way they were before. Its kind of hit and miss: some women have luck with breastfeeding afterwards, some are completely unable to draw milk.

    Also, I want to clarify something. I am not opposed to breastfeeding at all. Of course, I dont have the option to be opposed to it since I am male and wont ever do it, but I completely support the women who choose to do it. I agree that its an unbreakable bond between mother and child. White women....you are wonderful.

    I wish there was a weapons forum here. I already belong to all of the others ha.
