mom mom mom whoa how can you take care of your baby all upset like that. there will always always be people who don't like what you're doing. be informed by your doctors and from reading and research. h3)( with everyone else.
what on earth happened, your blood pressure must be sky high its as if you were physically beaten up?!
I totally bf my first and my second, no bottles. my third need formula and also bf to grow well.
my first two had no less infant and toddler illnesses as bf babies than those babies who were only ff.
my third baby who was bf and formula fed had no less illnesses than those who were only bf.
Breast feeding is important and good. But it alone by itself will not stop babies from getting sick. Keeping them away from other babies and little kids and the coughing vomiting public is what will keep babies more healthy than not.
I support what works best for baby to grow and mom to be well.

Some of the people who BF just plain think they are better, I am convinced of that!!! How often do you see a FF mom bragging and looking down on moms who BF? Personally I dont want a baby or a KID hanging off of me all the time and NO I dont think it makes me a bad mom. My kids and I have a great bond, I love them DEARLY, and they are hardly ever sick (yes we got lucky there!).
The other thing I find kinda funny (about extended BF) about their argument is they say they want to give their kid the best nutrition (again I agree it is neccesary for babies, not kids) because they dont want their kid to be like the reat of the americans who are obese, have asthma, blah blah blah...BUT You are the mom and have control over what they eat!! They dont have to eat cheeseburgers and fries and drink soda (that seems to be the alternative right? lol) They can feed them VEGGIES and FRUIT and plenty of other healthy foods.

Quote Tabi_cat: "BFing doesn't make a mom perfect but it does make the food she feeds her child BETTER. Thats it."
Who died ad made you god?! Its people like you that really really annoy me! Like we who ff our babies are lacking or not doing right by them somehow!
I dried up after just 4 weeks, THATS NATURE!!!! I got through the cracked and bleeding nipples and engorgement just to have left my baby unsatisfied! I went through depression killing myself because i thought i wasn't doing something right and i should definitely bf her! Well i couldnt, and it really upsets me why there should be this divide, just do your own thing. I would liked to have bf my beautiful baby girl until she was 6 months, but thats not how god or nature intended, and so i had NO CHOICE!!!!!
She is a VERY intelligent very funny and entertaining little girl, who is blessed with angelic looks, and so who the hell can tell me i didnt do the very best...
