  • God no. As long as her baby is fed, happy, healthy, well taken care of, and loved to bits, that's all that matters to me. Who am I to judge? Who am I to care?

  • Nope..

    I didn't breast feed though.. LOL

    I don't care how a woman chooses to feed her child. Breast or formula.. As long as she is feeding said child.

    Really.. That's what it boils down to for me personally.. Just feed your babies, how doesn't matter to me, just feed them.. :-)

  • No, how you feed your infant is a PERSONAL CHOICE!! And it is ONLY between the parents and their child! Everyone else has NO BUSINESS in that discussion.

  • Not at all, I was one of those, a totally personal choice.

  • No way...I tried breastfeeding and wish I could have been successful at it but now I have been formula feeding for 3 months. I do feel like in public when I'm making a bottle people look at me judgementally but who needs them anyway

  • No, it's a woman choice.

    Answer by xxlilmomma09 at 3:32 PM on Oct. 4, 2010

  • Coming from a breastfeeding mother, nope, I do not look down on any mother who doesn't breastfeed. Whether its for medical reasons or because she chooses not if you didn't feed your baby then I'd look down on you.
