i hope this link works. Good for her!

Good for her :-). I imagine it could do wonders for the breastfeeding rates in this country!
30/07/2013 at 12:18
I'm really glad to hear that, although can't imagine it's something she'll be doing in public.
30/07/2013 at 12:19
Good for her, hope she has an easy journey and gets all the support she needs. Like Deedee, I don't think we'll see her feeding publicly but I think it's great publicity for BFing.

Defimitely good for her. I was quite surprised to read in that article that less than 50% of mums are still breastfeeding at 6-8 weeks as round this way hardly anyone i see seems to use formula. Not a judgement in any way, just a musing. ..

The article says she won't be used as a pin-up and she's quoted saying it's a personal choice which is it
30/07/2013 at 14:05
I think it is sad that it's even something that is commented on tbh.
30/07/2013 at 14:13
It is sad JB but so is the fact that less than 50% of women get past 6-8 weeks for whatever reason. As others have commented perhaps it will do something for breast feeding figures here.

I agree it's sad it's commented on...as some who chose, and 'failed' to bf it I can testify it's not even about choice sometimes. There's no doubting she'll habe support...shame it's not easily accessible to all

Good for her on following on with what she wants to do, but it made me a bit sad (maybe sad a bit too strong a word but ykwim) that due to her bf they are expecting 'the trend' to follow on with young mums, ie they will bf because Kate does. It's nothing to do with Kate, I think feed how you want to feed. I did bf both boys but it was not an easy journey with either of them and celebs certainly didn't influence me on feeding. I think it's down to the couple.

A few of my friends really wanted to bf but couldnt - as Coco says itsca shame good support isnt available to everyone because for somethhing that is meant to be "natural" its bloody hard work!
30/07/2013 at 16:38
I agree that it's a total non story if she doesnt want to be used for promoting breastfeeding. Why have the palace even commented on it? And George won't be getting a dummy because they want to raise a "calm and quiet boy". What?? And Good luck with moulding your toddlers personality to how you would like it to be. I'm soooo over the royals!

I agree with coco's point but who's to say she will be 'successful' (whatever you count as successful anyway) as the baby is only a week old she has a tough time ahead with it still. I just think its good she's given it a go.

I'd love to know how the Mirror know this? May or may not even be true. I hope she is and that it suits them both. It is also reported she has no nanny, good for her. I also hope the cooks, cleaners, hairdressers and personal shoppers means she gets to sit round, feed her baby and has no other cares in the world. That is true privilege.

Oh for a hairdresser after birth *goes on the must have list for next time*

I did laugh at the reference to not having a dummy because they wanted him to be a 'calm and quiet ' boy. They obviously don't realise that a dummy does exactly that - calms them down and stops them screaming. Well, it worked for my two anyway. Guess it's not the look for the future king. Lol.
Tbh I think it was expected that she would attempt to BF as Diana and even the queen did so it's no big deal. I am quite envious of the support she'll be getting as lack of it meant I failed at BF twice. I would like them too use cloth nappies though, as you'd think Charles would encourage it being so Eco-friendly.

I'm sorry but I'm having that Kate will be sat there, hair scraped back, no make up, having screamed at wills for breathing the wrong way, trying to get George to take a dummy....no sorry was that just me and look at me, I have 2 calm quiet boys
30/07/2013 at 21:19
Nope, that was me too getting more and more annoyed at the spitting of it out. (I'd also vowed my children would never have a dummy though -lasted 2 weeks with my first and about 2 days with my 2nd!) I also noted that it claimed the staff wouldn't give him a dummy, to have staff to take her off my hands once in a while would have made all the difference. They don't stop screaming, hand them over. LOL. Actually I bet it's been mis quoted as she prob wouldn't want to give a dummy until she'd established BF, as recommend, anyway. If he takes after his Uncle Harry, he be anything but a calm and quiet boy anyway!

O yes, my children weren't having dummies either but you know what, after literally NO sleep L settled with a dummy so I then wanted to buy every dummy available as we were getting a bit of sleep Isaac wouldn't take one for ages I properly tried with him! He loves it now, he's SO going to be worse than Lucas to get rid of it (L had 5 for going to bed...I didn't care, he could have whatever he wanted if he slept a bit for us ), Isaac only takes one for sleeps but when he sees his change bag he asks for it as he knows its there

I bloody wish A would take a dummy. He's always rejected them all, we have loads that we tried and he didn't like. So I am his dummy
I'd love them to use cloth nappies too LWO, think it would be a real boost!
