Do You Multitask While Breastfeeding?

Yesterday, I threw out my two cents regarding watching television while breastfeeding. While some experts say that it is a no-no, like everything else in FBG-land, we subscribe to the motto “All good things in moderation.” Mothers should be encouraged and supported in their breastfeeding endeavors, not made to feel guilty if they need a little escape during those long hours spent feeding their babies. What do you think? (And click here for 10 things to do while nursing!)

Whether you breastfeed, formula feed or do a little bit of both, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Do you multitask? What tasks are acceptable while feeding your baby? —Erin

    At night, I love breastfeeding and concentrating soley on my baby girl. But I have to admit that during the day, I breastfeed my baby while cathcing up on my DVR list 😉 I don’t think it makes me a bad Mommy 😉

    I read, check emails on my cell, and make phone calls. Don’t get me wrong. It sounds like I’m not bonding with my baby, but I am. I do take some time to hold, watch, and marvel at this amazing little person. But, to sit for 30 to 45 minutes 5 to 6 times per day can be tough. Come on, I love her, but it would probably freak her out if I stared at her the whole time.
