I'm not anti breastfeeding but.....

it is not the answer for everything! I usually don't vent about this but I'm so sick of hearing it. Idc if you breastfeed or formula feed as long as your baby eats. I get tired of hearing the crap about "breast is best, it's good for you and baby" that's great but shut up already.

  • Ditto....and I'm sure you and any of us who agree with you will be told we are unfit parents.

  • I wouldn't say formula feeding moms get upset by breastfeeding moms.....I WOULD say that I've personaly been attacked and told I was an unfit mother because my medical condition and medications I take prevent me from breastfeeding. But some moms are so "breastmilk or your giving your baby poision" in their thinking it's like they would rather I die and leave me children motherless just to breastfeed. Some people, especially on cafemom are so finiacal on the subject they say aweful things. I've seen others on the formula feeding side call the breastfeeding moms "breast nazi's" So, it can go both ways as far as rudeness.

    But even yesturday a woman asked a question about organic formula since due to a medical condition she can't breastfeed. And half the answers said skip organic formula and breastfeed....they don't even read what she says, they just jump on the breastmilk bandwagon.

  • I'm with you 100%!!! I couldn't BF because my milk NEVER came in! You wouldn't believe the negativity I faced just because my body didn't create any milk, something that wasn't even my fault!!! I'm so over the bf vs ff war!

  • I formula fed my first two children, but I am pregnant with my third, and have decided to breast feed this child. I want to experience it, as this is my last child. I think every woman should give it a chance if they are able.

  • why do so many formula feeding parents get so upset about breastfeeding?


    Answer by Roadfamily6now at 1:24 PM on Sep. 28, 2010

  • i'm not upset about breastfeeding, i did breastfeed my daughter for a while but not my son, for personal reasons that are none of your business..i just get sick of hearing it ALL THE TIME now if the ff moms were doing the same thing bfs moms are i'd say something about them should be something to argue over we make our own decisions as parents on how to feed our babies, as long as they get fed who cares if it comes from a boob or a bottle?
