La Leche League wierdness. Is this normal?
I went to a La Leche League meeting with three mothers-to-be or new mothers and an LLL leader. One mother had to leave early, so it was just the three of us.
The group leader is still breastfeeding her five-year-old, and as part of the coaching, she obviously listed the advantages of breast feeding, telling us it was extremely healthy for mother and child.
Somewhere during all of this, she said it was very healthy for adults as well, and she offered to allow us to nurse from her, saying it was a very calming experience if we had never done so.
I refused, but the other mother laid in her lap and actually did nurse from her for many minutes while we finished talking.
Is this normal at all? Opinions?
I'm a little annoyed that some think I can make this up. I'm NOT against breastfeeding or LLL in general. Maybe I should report her for acting so inappropriate. The other woman seemed ok with it. She sure did stay latched on to that woman's breast long enough.
