Are there any moms who never breastfed at all?

Are your kids healthy?

  • I have 4 formula fed kids and they are all very healthy. They rarely get sick and when they do it's just a cold.
    In the 9 1/2 years I've had kids we've had 1 ear infection (last summer with my oldest and that was from swimming with a clogged ear) and 1 case of the flu (last October with my 8yo son, he was better in 3 days). My younger 2 kids are 7 and almost 4 and have never seen their doctor for anything but well check ups, no sick visits ever. They've never had anything worse then a runny nose and cough.
    We've also had a few cases of pink-eye, lol. I hate pink-eye.

  • I was formula fed. Am 28 and rarely get sick. I didn't miss any school in middle school or high school. I had a sinus infection in college and a few bad colds since then. I didn't really start getting sick until I got pregnant. Man that little parasite really did a number on my immune system!! :)

  • I didn't get to breast feed my kids. But yes they are very healthy. and happy people. So I guess it's okay not to breast feed.

  • I never did, and my kids have been very healthy, never even having most of the childhood diseases. They are now adults and continue having great health.

  • My DD is 7yrs old and I never breastfed her. She is very healthy and has never been real sick.
