First, representation of breastfeeding as fostering connectedness and intimacy between mother and child can contribute to an overly romanticized discourse of maternal identity. Some accounts support the notion of an ‘authentic’ or ‘true’ feminine self that is partly discovered and experienced via breastfeeding (see Dignam 1995, Hatrick 1997, Van Esterik 1989). Dignam, for example, believes women who are breastfeeding may use the intimacy engendered via the practice as an ‘identity tool’ through which the self can be more fully defined (1995: 480).
