No, it's a fact that not every woman can breast feed. Some women do not produce enough milk to sustain a child on breast milk alone, some women (like me) have children who refuse to latch on and/or drink breast milk (even in a bottle my 2nd born would not drink it) andthen there are some women who truly can not breast feed, the women who do not produce breast milk at all. An old friend of mine did not produce any colostrum or milk and had no choice but to formula feed her two sons.

A small percentage of women are not able to breastfeed/produce enough milk. It can be due to hormonal problems, or lack of breast development (Insufficient glandular development) to name a couple of physical reasons.
Unfortunately, MOST of the women who say that they couldn't probably could have with the right information and support.
