If a mother is perfectly able to breastfeed and doesn't work, why wouldn't she do it? I just don't understand why someone wouldn't do what's best for their child?
My sister doesn't work and had no physical or emotional problems preventing her from breastfeeding. She didn't even make it 6 weeks. She told me she didn't want to be tied down to her baby and she wanted to go out and drink when she wanted to and start smoking again. Well, if you can't sacrifice at least 3 months to a year for your child, then why have one? Motherhood is about sacrifice, it's no longer about YOU, don't be selfish!
So instead of doing what was best for her baby, she chose to go on WIC to get formula. And all the while knowing I lost my full term baby 2 weeks before hers was born and how precious and fragile a baby's life is. I just don't get it!
