  • I agree because everyone feels they are right and I would be the 1st to admit that I am NOT nor have ever been jealous over someone that is breast feeding I made the choice to formula feed and I wouldn't change my opinion for anyone on here

  • Some women Only see their way of doing things and everyone else's is wrong. The funny thing is I'm sure they that when people tell them how to raise their children yet they tell others what's right or wrong.

  • Because every one gets defensive when it comes to major decisions. No one is right or wrong but it is easy to feel like you are being accused or belittled when the opposing side is singing it's praises. It along with other major parenting choices are sensitive subjects.
