Elizabeth began by telling me that she failed with breastfeeding her first 2 babies.
She said that with her first baby, by the time she came home from the hospital she was already formula feeding, was fine with this and never looked back. That is, until she became pregnant for the second ti me. This time around she told herself that she was going to try harder. You see, she was a mom now, who was connected with a large circle of mom friends she met at playgroups. She told me that she tried hard not to stare at other moms when they were breastfeeding. She did not want her curiosity and longing to be that mother, who was breastfeeding her own baby, to be mistaken for someone who would be perceived as looking down upon this mom who was nursing in public. At the same time, she could not help but fantasize that she would soon join these other breastfeeding moms. Her perception is that it looked so easy and why couldn't she be just like them.
