I think the Guatemalan women have it right...We have a way complicating even the most basic natural experiences here in the U.S..

loved your vlog! i think i prefer the guatemalan way. i did have a bit more of an "experience" nursing my first, but now that i'm nursing my second i need to nurse on the go. it's more difficult without the societal acceptance: not only do people make comments, but doctors aren't supportive (lots of misinformation at best, outright ridicule at worst) and there's a whole learning curve for things like nursing in slings that i wonder if would exist if we had a culture where most everyone nursed on the go.
