This is more of a rant than a question...but OMG.

I understand that breastmilk is best and I've yet to see a mom that believes otherwise. HOWEVER, if people asking a question regarding formula, why the hell do people feel the need to butt in about breastfeeding?? If a mom CAN'T or doesn't breastfeed that's her business and she shouldn't need to explain it to anyone. So seriously, if someone asks a question about FORMULA, give an answer that relates to FORMULA. Keep your other opinions to yourself, you don't know other people's situation now, do you? I didn't think so. Go ahead, bash me. I could use a good laugh!

  • LOL...I'm NOT bashing but if you don't like the drama, why start a post about "evil nosey drama-queens"? You GOTTA know that it will start drama.

  • People on here do that with everything! You ask one question and get bashed for something unrelated. A girl says, I'm 16 and pregnant and want to know about legal issues and someone responds with How dare you get pregnant at that age etc etc. People think that they are so much better than those around them. I loved breastfeeding my daughter, and I can't wait to get pregnant and have another baby to breastfeed, but some people aren't comfortable with breastfeeding, or can't or are working and can't deal with pumping. It doesn't matter their reasoning, they shouldn't have to explain jack to anyone!

  • i completely agree with you! it seems like everyone on here is forgetting the purpose, its to help people not brag about yourself!! ive noticed that alot. people just being rude and telling other girls their dumb if they ask an "am i pregnant question" or something. people are looking for support and real answers. nobody cares how great everything they did was (because you know theyre all a bunch of lying bitches if they honestly think that everything they do is perfect!)

  • I've learned to never let another mom make me feel bad about any of the choices I've made for my family and my son. I guess it makes some moms feel better about themselves when they make another mom look or feel inferior. In the end, as long as you are doing what is best for your baby and family, nothing else matters. Especially not the opinions of others.

  • you know whats best for your baby, dust those people offyour shoulders and just move on, definitely not worth yor time or effort to let it really bother you.
