i just dont get it. my best friend baby is due in november and she has already decided to formula feed. she tried to tell me its because she lazy and doesnt want to have to get up alot at night, but i know that not why because obviosly if you breastfeed you dont have to get up and make a bottle. i tried to tell her its so much healthyer, because her other 2 kids get sick all the time! and she said she tried to breastfeed the first one for a minute but she thought it was awkward and unnatural!?!?she very stubborn so i know i cant change her mind and i dont want to piss her off trying, but i just cant understand why someone wouldnt want to even try to breastfeed. it seems kind of selfish. and she doesnt have alot of money, so why would you feed you baby a $30 can of formula when breastmilk is free? where is the logic behind this?

She even said it herself, she is lazy. She is also very selfish to put her needs before babies lifelong platform for health. It is a sad story that is repeated time and time again. Hopefully one day WIC will stop providing the fourth best option for baby, formula, for free and people will actually have to do what is best for baby.
