  • 100% a personal choice - and no woman should ever believe that it's her right to criticize how another woman chooses to feed her baby.

  • I personally formula fed my two daughters & I will formula feed my new baby. I don't feel comfortable breast-feeding.
    I understand several woman breast feed their babies and thats okay with me..

  • I would never judge a woman based on her decision to breast vs. formula feed. I don't expect to be judged for it either. It's a personal choice, period. I FF all three of my kids, I didn't have any medical issues, it just wasn't right for me.

  • I believe unless you have a medical issues you should try only because your going to make milk anyway and it's healthier. I prefer to BF over FF. But, shit happens.

  • I nursed all 5 of my children and never once ever thought to bash a mom who doesn't.

  • I breastfed my son and I will breastfeed the child I'm pregnant with, but I have absolutely NO problem how anyone else feed's their baby. It is not my business nor do I have any say in how others feed their children. How's that? lol. I just really couldn't care less how mothers feed their children. Do what you gotta do and what works best for you:)

  • I wanted to breastfeed desperately, because I do believe breastmilk is best for the baby, but my milk never came in sufficiently... So I had to supplement with formula, and eventually switched to formula all together. I can understand why some women never even try breastfeeding, especially women who work full time.... But I will once again try to breast feed with the baby I'm currently carrying. If it doesn't work, oh well.

    Yes, I feel breast is best, but I'm certainly not going to condemn anybody for formula feeding. Do whatever you need to do to keep your child happy and healthy.

  • i wanted to breastfeed and i thought it was awesome to have this ablity as a woman to be able to do such a remarkable thing. besides carry the baby for nine months. anyways i hurt so bad the first few days i couldn;t have her latch right. after it stopped hurting i did fine but by that time we were already supplementing with formula. it was fine. i switch to formula because of working and she is fine. its your own choice and noone has a right to tell you are you poisoning your child because your feed them formula or anything else they say. the feeding part is the most important part whichever way YOU choose!

  • Breastfeeding for me but that's what I wanted to do for my kids. Whatever another mom wants to do for her kids is her choice. I have parenting choices that I know others don't agree with but I wouldn't want anyone to give me grief over it so I try not to do it to others.
