I am not going to apologize.

I am not going to apologize to all the mothers that I have offended with my pro breastfeeding messages and to all of you who wonder why I care about how you feed your baby, it's because I am passionate about breastfeeding and educating women so that they can succeed at it. If all but ONE women takes anything my posts say to heart, that is enough for me.  If that's not enough for you, consider this. Why do people care about what other people do with their animals? Why do doctors perform surgeries and provide medical care for free in 3rd world countries? Why do scientists hunting for a cure, stay up late night after night? Why should they care? It's not their dogs, kids, family, friends, etc. 

To the comments about how ff don't push on bf. You don't have to push. The formula companies do it for you. They pushed out the propaganda to your grandmothers, your mothers, and now you. They have spent millions in ads that fill parenting magazines and occasionally tv.  Formula is pushed into my face when I turn the page to finish an article and there is a baby sitting there with a bottle in it's mouth.  It's even worse when the company states that it is "Now even Closer to Breastmilk." That is a slap on the proverbial cheek.  

I'm not going to apologize, because it is how I feel and I am not doing anyone any physical harm. I am not blowing up shoppers who buy formula, I am not going on shooting rampages in bottle factories. I am simply putting out the word. If you chose to ignore it, fine. You don't have to apologize for that.
