I think they do belive Jesus is the Son of God. They just don't think this makes Jesus a part of God. It's the trinity that they don't belive in.
The little grey box in the middle of the text.
As for using a pump and a bottle--for one thing, electric pumps are extemely expensive, and most cannot afford them, while hand pumps just don't work for most people. ( I never had much luck with them.) Also, there is a thing called "nipple confusion," especially with very young babies. It's actually, in my humble opinion, a misnomer, in that the baby isn't "confused" so much as just interested in getting the food in his tummy the fastest and easier way possible. Breastfeeding requires some effort on the part of the baby--the babe must suck fairly hard using slightly different muscles, iirc (compared to a bottle) to get sustenance--(and this helps develop the muscles in and around the mouth and tongue which aids in language development and eating etc as the child grows)--whereas using a bottle requires very little power on the part of the baby, as the milk practically flows out on it's own. Some babies will refuse the breast after getting a bottle, and most parents will give in to a hysterical, hungry baby (as well they ought, lol) thus cementing the baby's choice for the bottle. Then there are the problems associated with spoiled milk (to be expected if you're out far longer than you intended, perhaps), getting the milk to the right temperature, leaking bottles, and the issues associated with plastic touching food to begin with, none of which is ever an issue with breast milk. Long story short, most breastfeeding experts suggest not ever using a bottle IF you can avoid it (which most working mothers cannot). The troubles associated with pumping are in large part responsible for the short amount of time most working mothers choose to breasfeed, btw. It really is a total PITA. Breastfeeding is easy and convenient otherwise.

Sky, you need to check up "christian" in the dictionary, cause I don't think you know what it means.
Seeking infinity, with all my affinities.
Finding truth, like a falling fruit, my ultimate finality.
Inside my being, the outside, all things; the finite leads the way.
Once I met this guy in Reno.
Then I killed him just to watch him die.

You forgot to mention the part about dying .
The "Religion and Breastfeeding Thread"?
I confess to spending the last past two hours watching Mike Myer's The Cat In The Hat out of boredom.
It figuratively raped the intelligence out of my brain cells.
I have never before been filled with such regret over lost time.
Why , is it so bad ?
And what is it anyway ?

When I see chickens, I act like Ed from Ed, Edd and Eddy, complete with the dopey "ayhuh huh huh, huh huh huh!" laugh. I don't hug the chickens though, but I want to. They're fluffy. :)
But wouldn't the bastards peck at you if you did ? ;)
I have a habit of sucking my thumb. IDK.
Unintentionally keeping everyone at a distance.
Even if you're caught without a blanket in public with a starving baby, there's always a bathroom stall. That's what I'll do, but most likely won't need to because I like the idea of the pumps. As disturbing as that is, my impatient bastard self also finds it extremely irritating the times I've been out with a breast-feeding lady and they had to stop for 15 minutes 3 times during the outing to feed their kid. I'm not gonna be that lady.
The only weird confession I can think of is I still sleep with one of my stuffed animals on the bed (I've never really fell asleep with one in a death clutch, I just like them on the bed), don't need it anymore, it's more out of habit.
This is all new to me. I was never aware that women in America took extra steps when it came to breastfeeding in public. Back at home, we took it as an everyday thing. And to think mothers usually have enough to deal with already.
