I was answering a question for hesmynavyman and I read the first answer that someone wrote. I got really upset. I didn't breastfeed any of my kids because I didn't produce any milk. I tried. I talk to a consultant too. I just stayed empty. The anonymous said pretty much there is no excuse why woman can't breastfeed and I would like to know what she has to say. What do you think are mothers that bottle feed wrong? I don't think so other wise my kids would have starved.Answer Question

I breastfeed and frankly I can't stand the breastfeeding Nazi's.
Breast is best, but some people just CAN'T.

I am definitely a lactivist. For me breastfeeding was the natural choice. Even though I try to tactfully educate people about breastfeeding, it is their decision to make. No one has the right to put another parent or caregiver down over this decision. My personal belief is that it is important & I would love to see the national statistics of breastfeeders raise to 97%, but the fact is it never will. I wish that more people would concern themselves with gentle education rather than bashing another mom. The most important thing is that the child is being loved and taken care of, regardless of if you feed them breastmilk, formula or liquefied skittles. I really do feel bad for women who can not breastfeed, which is about 3% of the female population. I guess the anonymous replier is not very concerned with bridging the gap and supporting good parenting in general.
