BYOB Party for Breastfeeding Moms

When should a man steer clear of a BYOB party with lots of babes? When BYOB stands for "Bring Your Own Boobz" - yes, a home party for breastfeeding moms:

The parties are strictly BYOB. But the place will be littered with babes, without any alcohol in sight.

That's because these are BYOBoobz parties -- yes, as in mammary glands. And the home parties are designed to give support, guidance and a few free goodies to new breast-feeding moms, as part of a mission to help them overcome the "booby traps" associated with nursing.

Lisa Holewa of AOL News has all the titillating details: Link

A woman in front of me at the grocery bought several canisters of powdered baby formula for about $47 each. After she left, the clerk commented on how ridiculously expensive that is. I said, "It's enough to make you want to breastfeed!"

She laughed, because she is young and probably never thought of that.

Yay, and thank goodness they're doing it in their OWN HOME.

Nothing worse than some self entitled Mother all exposed at a mall with a kid hanging off her free-swaying teets who thinks she has some right to be disgusting because "I GAwTTA Feed Mah Bayy beee!"

Yeah lady, the kid is going to drop dead if you don't go find a bathroom or go somewhere private.
Nice try. Repulsive. Poo'ing is natural too, as is having sex. Some things you just don't do in public.

I agree with Matt. I'm not quite sure how this is disgusting. I guess it's the same people that find naked mannequins objectionable. Something about the way they were raised I assume. Freaking weird. I probably wouldn't even notice it.

Maybe the sight of a woman breastfeeding her baby bridges that gap between human and animal and that scares some people.

It's more a case of being offended by those who make a big deal of the feeding. Most feeding is done diecreetly. It's just the few bad melons that spoil it for the rest.

I think it also has a little to do with the attitude of smug superiority some breastfeeders have - kinda like vegetarians who have to let you know they're vegetarians, and you're a horrible person for eating meat.

Many years ago I was a councilor for a local group of nursing (breastfeeding) mothers. Germ-laden restrooms are not appropriate for breastfeeding. Our advice for discreet breastfeeding was to cover the chest, arm and infant with a small lightweight blanket. The infant was less distracted and passers-by less offended. We told the mothers to explain to any curious person that the baby was sleeping. I remember one young mother who worried that her infant's noisy breastfeeding would be overheard. Our advice-sing.
