  • I did it for six weeks, then my milk turned into water and I did nothing but breastfeed everyday! Not all moms can BF for all different reasons, we should get that time off irreguardless.

    this is more for moms who choose not to bf at all,. not those who try. i do agree regardless of bf or ff moms in american should geta year of leave.

  • I ain't taking no one else's milk no freaking way, my kids get from me or formula, and no kid is better than the other for that matter! You aren't a better mother if you BF either! Get over yourselves, I'm not upset that I can BF I did for as long as I could, and I gave it my all, Get over your BF selves!
