  • Thank you piwife! I'm def. not a lazy mom at all, I do everything for my daughter and she keeps me busy 24-7! I did BF for 6 weeks and pumped, but my milk quit coming in and started drying up, so I had to go to formula, and I chose soy, but as long as our babies are fed and healthy it doesn't matter how they eat as long as they aren't starving! ANd just b/c you BF it doesn't make you a better parent at all. :)

  • I'm sure there are bf'ing moms who are too lazy to make bottles and formula moms who are too lazy to nurse. There are lazy moms who make decisions based on their laziness and other moms who don't.

  • When I said you in the last sentence I was refereing to all the moms who BF and think they are God's gift to earth. Not you Piwife.

  • Moms who pump every 4 hours are not lazy! They have it the worst of anyone! I don't know how you do it, pumping sucks. Get it:)

    Have you tried putting your baby back to your breast. Sometimes problems you had earlier no longer exist and you put the baby close and pop the baby will nurse! You may be able to work with a LLL Leader or lactation counsultant and get the baby breastfeeding.

    I don't think breastfeeding moms say bottle feeding moms are lazy. I think breastfeeding moms say we are lazy! One of the top 10 reasons to breastfeed.

  • please get over your insecurities about your feeding choices. if the baby gets species specific milk, thats wonderful. yay! good for you... if not, then i feel sorry for her. but could you please, please, please, please, please (can you see a pattern here?), please, please just stop whining about it?

    BF vs FF the epic battle between right and wrong... here we go again, and i will eventually say something not so nice... *sigh* its just been one of those days, i have a feeling i am about to become very blunt with people.
