  • Okay, go away. Now you're being a troll. Enough with the BF questions now. We get what your preference is.

  • I absolutely loved breastfeeding my now 2 yr old so much so that my 2 week old is being breastfed again. I deal with the pain of it because i know the proven health benefits of it. Id suffer any day to have healthy children :)

  • I wouldn't guess convenience. Breastfeeding is way more convenient. We all have different lifestyles. Breastfeeding just doesn't fit into all of them. (I do breastfeed, but I know a lot of people who don't, and I don't think less of them as parents for it.)

  • Most parents start out breastfeeding but end up bottle feeding because they actually have to sit down and let that child feed, which gives the mom much needed breaks. They also don't give their nipples time to firm up and it can be very painful at first especially when the nipples break open or crack. People get tired of pumping if they go back to work. They claim they did'nt have enough milk as an excuse for not feeding anymore. The dad doesn't get to feed baby unless milk is pumped. But breastfeeding is the best thing in the world and I would recommend it to anyone that wants to have a baby.
