How Mothers that breastfeed feel like everyone wants then to formula feed.. And mothers that formula feed feel like everyone wants them to breastfeed? Kinda interesting... No matter what you do, you can't please everyone I guess..

  • That is the best thing about being a mom. It is figuring out what works best for your family and doing it. I work hard not to worry about what others think, I know what I am doing is best for my family, so I do it.

  • I tried to breastfeed, but my daughter was allergic to breastmilk. Every time I would feed it to her, she would violently throw up. So the pediatrician told us to just formula feed, so thats what we did.

  • Babies are not allergic to breast milk. That's like saying a monkey is allergic to monkey milk or a cow is allergic to cow milk. It was most likely something in your diet, not the milk.

  • Yes babies can be allergic to beastmilk! actually my doctor and the pediatrician said she was allergic to breastmilk, and its actually quite common.

  • Isn't that the truth! Everyone wants to interject in others lives. Especially when it comes to babies. As time goes on, it's easier to tune it all out. I wish I could have earlier!
