For BF mommies that put FF mommies down. What about this?

I have seen so many moms on here bash FF moms for FF. Whethere by choice or not shouldn't matter since it's not their child. But, for those moms, when you are done BF do you plan on giving cow's milk? Isn't that worse than formula? Just a question.

  • OP, I actually get what you're saying. I have seen the BF nazis on here making everyone who FF's feel like dirt. A person can get their point across without insulting and humiliating others, but the BF nazis don't understand that. Now, I'm not talking about all moms that BF. Many are polite in the way they answer questions about formula on CM and don't try to put others down for their choices.


    I would like to see how many BF nazis go to the store after weaning and pick up a gallon of regular whole milk (not brands like Horizon which are organic). The non-organic milk is over processed and contains a lot of hormones that kids don't need. It can cause a lot of problems such as early onset of puberty. It would be interesting to create a poll and see what the results are. Of course, the BF nazis would never admit to buying anything that's bad for their kids.

  • No, cow's milk is natural, formula is man-made.

  • Cow's milk is not natural. It's for cows and has lots of nasty things in it...including hormones

  • Not if you buy hormone free. Or organic. Formula has nasty stuff too.

  • mostly the concern is that milk doesn't have enough fat and nutrients for babies to grow properly till they are older. which is why it is "worse than formula".

  • screw any mom who puts down FF moms. get off your high horses, your not any better than anyone else just because you BF. Formula offers all of the nutrients that BF does these days.
