Lokasi: Pusat membeli-belah
Anak tgh nangis kuat sbb nak susu…
Si Ibu: ala bang.. baby nak susu la..
Si Suami: cepat2 pegi baby room.. abg tunggu sini..
Si Ibu: Ala.. jauh la.. kene naik 2 tingkat.. susu kan kat sini jer la..
Si Suami: Hish awak ni… tak malu ker nanti semua org nampak B awak tu.. dah2 pegi cepat…
Si Ibu: (kecewa..berlari2 anak sambil tolak stroller)…
Lokasi: Rumah sedara
Anak tgh nangis.. time tu tgh syok borak2 dgn sedara…
Si Ibu: Alamak bang, baby nak susu plak..
Si Suami: Pegi masuk bilik la.. Ha, Lan, bole tumpang bilik tak?
Sedara: Bole2.. tp bilik sepah sket, panas plak tu..
Si Suami: Takpe2.. bole jer..
Maka Si Ibu duk kat bilik sorg2 dlm kepanasan dan kebosanan.. sambil sayup2 mendengar sedara2 kat luar tgh borak2…
2 situasi di atas mmg biasa berlaku pada ibu2 yg menyusukan anak... Bila anak2 nangis nak susu.. mula la panic nak cari baby room la… surau la.. Tu kalau mall yg ada kemudahan2 mcm tu.. kalo yg takder?? Terpaksa la cepat2 lari ke kereta.. langsung terus blk umah.. tak jadi shopping..
Kenapa la susah sgt nak breastfeed ni?
Sbnarnya kita yg buat breastfeed tu jd susah.. buat apa bersusah payah cari baby room yg ntah kat mana tptnya.. time tu baby da meraung sakan.. Apa yg perlu sbnarnya cuma si ibu dan si anak… breastfeed la di mana2 sahaja.. buat apa nak tangguh2 kan… Yg penting, teknik nak cover tu kene la pandai.. J
Aku ada baca kat 1 website ni… http://www.lactivist.com/nursnpub.html
Antara petikan2 yg best:
“This issue keeps many a mother from breastfeeding successfully. The thought of having to bare our breasts can make many of us cringe. Why is this? Why is it so terrible to show the natural infant food source? The sexualization of the breasts is the main reason. Breasts have become part of the pornography subculture. This causes women to feel as if they are doing something wrong by breastfeeding their children. This couldn't be farther from the truth”
“Breastfeeding is a learned technique, which is best learned by seeing it performed. Most women who are giving birth have seen few or no breastfeeding mothers actually perform this act. Many women are wholly unprepared for the task of breastfeeding and thus never establish the breastfeeding relationship. Lack of education and lack of support make this all the worse. By breastfeeding in public we allow future mothers to have a basis of experience in viewing breastfeeding mothers”
“Babies don't understand schedules and locations. They understand the feeling of hunger and the necessity for food only. Making a baby wait to eat can be very upsetting and potentially dangerous. By meeting your baby's needs whenever and wherever you are, you can build the trust necessary to raise an emotionally healthy child.”
“Knowing that what you are doing is the most natural and healthy way to nourish your child can help you to overcome the modesty issue. If more women start to nourish their children in plain view we would reclaim our breasts as the life giving vessels that they are. Every time that you nurse your child out in the open, you have the opportunity to show a young girl the healthiest way to feed her future children. We need to be out in public being great examples of loving mothers. You can help to sway the cultural misbelief that breasts are only for sex.”
“Sit down and feed your child, wherever you are. Don't worry what anyone else is thinking. Just assume that they are looking at you and thinking what a great mother you are to give her child breastmilk.”
Aku sgt2 setuju dgn ayat2 kat atas ni… So pada breastfeeding momies, jgn malu2 nak susukan anak yer.. Anda tak buat salah pun… hehe..
