Whats up with the Boobie Pushers ?

I mean really every question about formula i read a smart a$$ remark"its cheaper" "its better for the baby" "your selfish" But Some go tooooooooo far with it. I dont understand why people would go so low to make someone feel bad about not breastfeeding a baby. I have tried and i never ever would AGAIN..I hated it and my daughter did better with a bottle..Why cant they let it be and realize people can choose now...ugggh

  • i am all for breasting feeding, it IS cheaper, it IS healthier for baby, and most importantly it IS mom's choice, and what works best for her and her baby

  • Breast is best...that is a fact. I HATED nursing. I didn't think it was cheaper with the pads and ointments and storage bags and pumps, but I paid it all and pumped away so my daughter could have my breast milk because it was the best thing for her body and I could do it whether I liked it or not. I think its selfish not to give it your best effort.

  • I am all for choice. If you want to breastfeed go right ahead. If you want to bottle feed go right ahead.................. Their is only one thing I don't like about breast feeding moms. That is when they are in public and whip the tit out. Don't tell me "well don't look then" It's kind of hard not to when your exposing your self to the world

  • I think kabbot01 you are the first person I have ever heard say you hated breastfeeding. I'm not saying this in a negative way. I'm actually relieved someone admitted it. With the exception of friends who have had difficulties with breastfeeding or friends that just didn't - I have never heard someone say it was damn difficult. Thank you. Now there is a woman.  I would breastfeed in a heartbeat given another opportunity - but I suspected there would be more to it than just suck and go.

  • There is nothing wrong with mom's who want to formula feed. It doesn't mean we are selfish or bad mom's who don't love our children.
