Is breastfeeding creepy?

Okay, this is a different kind of creepy than Zombies, but....

Under the headline "I formula fed. So what?", Kathryn Blundell says in last month's Mother & Baby that she bottle fed her child from birth because "I wanted my body back. (And some wine)… I also wanted to give my boobs at least a chance to stay on my chest rather than dangling around my stomach."

She goes on to say: "They're part of my sexuality, too – not just breasts, but fun bags. And when you have that attitude (and I admit I made no attempt to change it), seeing your teeny, tiny, innocent baby latching on where only a lover has been before feels, well, a little creepy."

Well, I like her attitude anyway.
