I breast fed DD til one year...so what? Why is this such a big deal, who cares? I dont look down on people who FF...I watched my step mom pump for two weeks and get an ounce...how is this good for a baby? Eatting an ounce in two weeks...please!! I think everyone on here needs to realize that not everyone CAN breast feed and that you shouldnt judge, my step mom tried and tried and tried but couldnt...I tried and had an amazing milk supply...every one is different. And just because you dont BF doesnt mean you are a bad mom...
So why is it that almost all BF moms on here say rude comments to other moms who formula feed?? This site was made to support each other...RIGHT???

Mikayla lynn, I'm so sorry for your step mom has experienced this. I agree with you 100%. I myself chose to breastfeed 3 of my 4 children but it wasn't easy. To this day, I have to take fenugreek to help my milk production. Everyone is different. When I pump, I get nothing! I finally resigned myself to just breastfeed my children straight from the boob. But that was a choice that worked for me & maybe not for someone else. As mothers, we should all unite & try to help each other. Although I chose breastfeeding for myself, it irks me when mothers stomp on other moms for not breastfeeding. An RN told me that formula has significantly improved so much. Once again, I'm sorry your step mom has experienced such judgemental views during such a vulnerable time, my heart goes out to your step mom.
