It’s Not Easy Bein’ Green

Posted: September 22nd, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Breastfeeding | Tags: Breastfeeding Blog Hop, Environmentally Friendly, Green | 5 Comments »

I never thought about Breastfeeding being environmentally friendly, but it totally is.

No Water.
No Waste.
No Energy.
No Pollution.
No Irrigation.
No Transport.
No Packaging.

Not too shabby.

I’m not sure what lengths I’d go to just for the benefit of being green though.

Breastfeeding was hard for me. Really freaking hard.

None of those things listed above made my low supply suddenly better. When it comes down to it, if it was the difference between feeding my son and doing what’s best for the environment, well I’m going to feed my son. Even if that means using more water, more waste, more energy….you get the picture.

All of those things up there are a nice by-product but they in no way shaped my views on breastfeeding.

    Very true! As moms, we can only do so much. Good for you for doing what's best for your baby!

    Totally with you on this. It's a great fringe benefit, but not the main reason (or even in the top few) that I did it.

    its very true!! and if the zombie apocalypse ever happens.. at least us breastfeeding mama's have nothing to worry about 😉 hehe

    but all humor aside… no mother should make another mother feel bad about THEIR choices on HOW and WHAT they feed their baby!! being a mama is hard enough!!

    I think if I had approached breast feeding with my husband from the green idea he wouldn't have supported it…from the cost and health aspect though it is a no brainer

    That is so funny. I guess I have thought about that before. It is good to know that if something major happened we would be okay 🙂
