What is your intended purpose when you utter a single word about BF to someone you KNOW is formula feeding? Do you expect them to convert? Should they put their child in foster care? Aside from being a bully (or any other b word you'd care to substitute), for what specific reason are you giving FF mothers YOUR opinion on their act of formula feeding?
If you see someone say they FF because they were "unable to bf" how is it your place to question if that reason is "valid"? Is it even any of your business?
But mainly, W H Y are you discussing BF with mothers you KNOW are FF and have been for months?
Actually I have never commented a ff mother but have gotten nasty comments by them because i breastfeed. I think a lot of them assumed i thought poorly of them and got defensive and insulted me before a word ever came out of my mouth and I didn't plan to say anything to them so then yea I will get nasty after the fact. I personally do not have a problem with formula I have used it when needed if I don't get to pump enough. I work now and even before that there were times someone else had to feed my son from a bottle either pumped milk or formula. I think it goes both ways, people are crummy all around. Where I live breastfeeding is rare and people treat me like a freak with no arms or something.
