  • The debate will go on forever. This place just loves drama. I don't care what people choose it is the mom's choice and I don't get why any other person should care.

  • Ask a mom who has had a baby that ends up in emergaency when their baby has a bad reaction to formula or has to actually pay for the formula.

  • I formula fed both kids, never had an issue, they were always full and happy and my boobs are right where they are supposed to be. I'd do it again. The thought of breastfeeding made me cringe. I wanted to be free and not have a child yet again tied to my body. To each his own.

  • This why I don't discuss my parenting choices on here. Nobody's business.

  • I was going to ask the same question tonight, but decided not to. I think it's ridiculous that other women feel the need to condemn other moms who choose not to breastfeed. It's none of their damn business. Instead of focusing on other people's kids, pehaps they should focus on their own!!

    I was unable to breastfeed for medical reasons, and trust me, I've gotten the same condemnation as a mom who chose not to for personal reasons. It's insane. And sickening.

  • Because some people aren't happy unless everyone is like them

    and to annon 11:07, I FF and have never been on WIC so DH and I payed for ALL of the formula ourselves, even when I was a SAHM we still paid for formula and didn't have to cut anything out to pay for it. So she can ask me on at least the mom who's paid for their own formula part.

  • It's not, but on this site it seems somebody has to throw out some kind of negative comment to a post question concerning their personal choice. It's neither nice nor something I respect but it does seem to be something common on this site :( sad really.

    I can only suggest ignoring the rude comments.
