Breastfeeding is not easy and it is not easy but it has become unnatural. Is it now turning into bragging?
Dictionary break: to brag.
* The act of showing off about yourself or something that belongs to you.
* Display of luxury, power or wealth.
Arrogance or hostility to make a moral or intellectual impression on (someone); Seal, display, display.
* Shows legitimate pride; an offer.
Then. what do you think? Do you know the Queen of England (the United Kingdom already)? Yes, Her Majesty Elizabeth (Isabel II) 95 (April 21, 1926), the first Queen of the House of Windsor, was crowned on June 2, 1953. She is the same. Did you know that she breastfed her four children (Charles, Ann, Andrew and Edward)? Why the surprise?
In the past, “newborns of the royal family” were given to “wet nurses” who would breastfeed their babies so they could resume their royal duties (their jobs and the process of giving birth to the next heir).
fake news At the time: Breast milk curdled if marital relations were resumed before weaning (according to royal historian Amy Lessis in the newspaper The guardian).
The Queen was a pioneer in the field of “motherhood”, choosing to ignore this rule, Choosing to Breastfeed Their Babies and Creating a New Trend in “Kings”Even against the reaction of his sister, Princess Margaret, who considered this situation “unpleasant”. But, look at the example over there, guys. Both Princess Diana and the Duchess of Cambridge followed in the King’s footsteps, proudly choosing to breastfeed their children.
And if Queen Elizabeth II (Elizabeth – for us here) had known the information about infectious diseases and breastfeeding, she would not have weaned Prince Charles in 1949 at the age of two months from measles. She would have continued to breastfeed if she had Information That the disease is not transmitted through breast milk, but through contact with respiratory secretions, from the incubation period to the period of illness, or the use of preventive care (masks, alcohol gel), or wait for the first four days of isolation and expression of the disease. Milk it meanwhile, to Charles.
Is it the brag that explains the fact that many mothers during breastfeeding tell their stories and post photos and videos on social networks? Some of them still keep their photos with algorithm (Cheap!). Aren’t these attitudes part of the strong? Strengthening the communication network, so necessary for those times when a woman is at home, trying to adapt to her new paradigm of “mother’s life”, often (but often) lonely and lonely?
I like an idea attributed to Henry Ford (founder of Ford Motor Company – 1863-1947): “Whether you think you can or if you think you cannot, you are right anyway.” What can determine your course in breastfeeding? Information, Free Will, Support Network, Public Policies (and more…).
And one last thought for today. look at this newsletter About Queen Elizabeth, who in June 2022 will celebrate the Platinum Jubilee (70 years of her reign). The 95-year-old Queen Elizabeth II has rejected her nomination for the ‘Lady of the Year’ award (Oldie of the year, in English) awarded by a British magazine dedicated to the elderly. “You’re getting old as you feel,” said the Queen, who said she “didn’t fit” into the award criteria.
In addition, Queen Elizabeth II is the Head of State of the United Kingdom and 15 other countries:
Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, The Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Canada, Grenada, Jamaica, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent, the Grenadines, the Solomon Islands, and Tuvalu.
Queen Elizabeth has breastfed her four children (only Charles for two months) and is 95 and in ‘enviable physical health’. Do…?
