Breastfeeding, Its My Right

My name is Duncan and I'm 2 years old. I want to thank my Mommy and Daddy for choosing breastmilk as my only food for my first six months. It turned out I had lots of food allergies that lead to ear infections. I would have been a very sick baby if I hadn't gotten the very best food for babies.

I loved it when I was little. Mommy was always there to nurse me whenever I was hungry, scared, or just wanted some time with her. If we were out shopping or visiting, I knew that all I had to do was ask, and Mommy would smile knowingly at me.

As I started to get a bit bigger, something changed. Life was great when we were at home. Mommy was almost always willing to let me nurse whenever I wanted. But if we were out shopping or at a restaurant, she would try to distract me with toys or a drin of water. I didn't want toys or water. I knew exactly what I wanted, and she knew it too. Why didn't she just nurse me?

One day we were at the mall when it happened. Finally, Mommy did sit down and get things ready, but suddenly there was a blanket over my head! I couldn't see anything, and I couldn't breath very well. I kept pulling it off, which annoyed Mommy a bit. Then she did the most disgusting thing.

Mommy took me into a bathroom to nurse. It smelled awful in that bathroom. There was no where for Mommy to sit comfortably. She just couldn't relax and I really didn't like nursing in a bathroom. Finally, she gave up.

She put me back in my stroller and pushed it into this beautiful, large room with windows, tables and chairs. Why hadn't she just gone there in the first place? Everyone around us was eating and drinking. There was lots of fun conversation to listen to. Boy, was I going to enjoy breastfeeding here!

But that is not what happened. Mommy took me back to the car and we went home. I don't understand it. If everyone else can eat in that nice room, why can't a baby?

Duncan asked his Mommy, Christine Nicholls, to write his story for him. Christine runs a home-based business, Creative Kids at Home, providing creative gifts to delight children. http://www.ckah.com
