I'm not really sure what's considered a "young mother" but I'm 21. I plan to try and breast feed. My entire life I've just been uncomfortable with the idea of it and just figured I would pump and save my milk instead of directly nurse my baby. I'm trying to be as open-minded as possible, and many other mothers tell me that after delivering a baby I might find myself feeling much more comfortable with the idea of breast-feeding.
I'm incredibly modest, but I've also grown up in a culture where breasts were only viewed as sexual. I can't exactly pinpoint the reason why I feel uncomfortable with the idea of breastfeeding. The only reason I'm doing my best to accept it and try it is because of the health benefits for the baby (I wouldn't want to give my baby less than the best just because mommy's culture doesn't value breasts for breastfeeding) and of course to save money.
A lot of young women work as well... I will be staying home and so it's not inconvenient for me to nurse. A lot of young moms (especially single moms) have to work full time and don't have professional careers that can allow them to conveniently pump while at work. Most of my peers who have children went back to work after 3 months and that's when they stopped nursing.
