It looks like moms have another thing to feel guilty about.

It’s called “brexting”.  That’s breastfeeding while texting or using your smartphone.

Some parenting experts have come out recently and said that spending time staring at a screen while breastfeeding reduces a mom’s ability to bond with her baby during that time.

But the CEO of the Australian Breastfeeding Association says not to worry, it’s all about balance.  Breastfeeding can take a long time, and mom’s sometimes need a break to answer an email or just relax.
