Motherhood is very different than it was just a few decades ago. There are so many conflicting opinions on how to raise a child, how to birth a child, what to feed a child… the list goes on and on.
You could read baby books for days on end and still have no idea which way is the right way. That may be because raising a child is, in so many respects, up to the mother.
Even if people disagree about some things, it’s not always an issue, because the conflicting parenting happens within the privacy of the home.
But what about when parenting choices enter the public realm? One mind-bogglingly hot issue today is whether or not breastfeeding in public is acceptable.
