Kangaroos, Breastfeeding, and Churches

It's long been known that premies benefit from "kangaroo care," skin-to-skin responsive contact. The April issue of Pediatrics published new information. "Research in full-term newborns found more good results. The newborns that had kangaroo care shortly after birth slept longer and were mostly in a quiet sleep state compared to those who didn't have it." Read more in laymen's terms or in the technical version.

Last week, a church in Australia banned breastfeeding by mothers during playgroup, for the inane reason that it "might offend passing tradesmen or ethnic groups."

Thankfully, other churches encourage breastfeeding mamas. I remember when we visited Marco Island Presbyterian and I saw an invitation to a monthly La Leche League meeting held in the church nursery. If churches don't embrace the way the Creator designed mothers and children, who will?

The breastfeeding issue would be enough to make me change my church membership.!

Posted by: chrysalis at June 24, 2004 06:50 AM

Of all the stupid, idiotic things to do to moms... (regarding Australian church)!

Posted by: AutMom at June 24, 2004 08:10 AM

I remember some of the looks I'd get while nursing in church. In the sanctuary even! Well-meaning but misguided older ladies would gently tell me there was a nursery I could go to.

I did tell a few insistent people that Jesus was breastfed, and if it was good enough for him... ;)

Posted by: Andrea at June 25, 2004 02:49 PM

That's interesting, Andrea. . . I always tried to be more careful/discreet around older folks who might be less comfortable with breastfeeding--but it was the older ladies who were the most encouraging at one of the churches we used to attend!

Btw, Missy, I'm glad you noticed! Been feeling much more. . . normal. *grin*

Posted by: TulipGirl at June 25, 2004 04:19 PM

I recently left because of a controversy about attachment parenting/breastfeeding. THey left me no choice, I was no longer welcome there unless I changed my parenting. It still breaks my heart but God first, then my husband, then my children. Church is just a building.

Posted by: Jess at June 26, 2004 02:13 AM

That is really hard--and I don't understand how things like that happen (though I know they do.) There is one church that we were a part of for several years that we couldn't go back to--even visit--both because of theological differences and parenting issues. No children allowed in the sanctuary. How are families to worship together? How are breastfeeding mothers to care for their little ones AND join in worship?

Posted by: TulipGirl at June 26, 2004 09:59 AM

"For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself."

Kinda hard when the kids aren't allowed in the sanctuary. Shesh.

Posted by: mike at June 27, 2004 09:13 AM

Yep, Mike. Not a real understanding of covenantal families.

Btw, it wasn't a Presbyterian church. . .
