ITS NOT LAZY!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I seriously hate it when someone refers to ff as being 'lazy'.
How is it lazy?

1.you have to clean and sanitize the bottles and nipples.
2. You have to boil water so its sanitized and prepare the formula.
3. You have to make sure its the right amount of water and formula so baby doesnt get consitpated or have stomach upset.
4. You have to prepare the bottles.
5. You have to get the bottles temperature JUST right.

Now bf:
1. Whip your tit out.
2. Put baby on tit.

So HOW is it lazy?



ETA: i bf'd and ff.
I KNOW bf is hard the furst couple months. I was alone so no her biodad did not feed her during the day or night. I fed her. Only me. After my milk dried out i had to ff. She was only 4 weeks old.

I know both sides. So dont lecture me on it.
And if your so 'offended' by the word 'tit' please excuse yourself because obviously you are not an adult.

Its a tit-boob-breast.
Same shit.

then why be on the site at all?

Quoting Alliemad_3:

It doesn't offend me. I find it crass and juvenile. NOt really the way you want to come across when trying to prove a point.

But whatever. This site is the most condensed pool of stupid I've ever seen. It never ceases to amaze me.

Quoting themouthyone:

I can't believe someone actually found that offensive. Lol



Quoting Anonymous:

Lol i really dont care.


Tit.

Grow up and use an adult word instead of being crude and using "tit" and perhaps I would hear you out.

 Each has it's own difficulties.  You can't let someone else feed baby if you're bfing, you have to put up with sore nipples, possibly cracking and bleeding, thrush, mastitis, clogged ducts, over active letdown etc.

no. but that doesnt mean i dont know what goes into it.

Quoting Schleetle:

Have you breastfed?

Quoting mcr17:

what else really goes into BF other than that?

Quoting Schleetle:

Neither is completely easy, neither makes the person lazy. The way you described breastfeeding is sort of ridiculous though.

I use playtex drop ins as my bottle of choice. I also ebf for the first 6mo.

about FF

... but I don't always sanitize the nipples after I buy them, and never after unless it has come into contact with something "raw" or "rotten"

....wait, what? boil the water? never done that.

.....wait, you mean I can't estimate the amount?

....who said what about the temperature? since when??

about BF

... but I had to hold the baby the whole time, at least when they were on the bottle I was able to move around and do things.

my kids turned out perfectly fine.... you are just an overprotective mother

maybe because to me, it wasnt a bad choice. it was a very good choice for my child,

the way you word everything shows your obvious distain for FFing parents

Quoting Anonymous:

I didn't say that at all. I have plenty of friends who use formula and they are amazing mothers. I think it was a poor choice but I don't think it means someone is a horrible person. The act itself isn't very caring in my opinion.

And you're right in that it's none of my business, just like people who choose to formula feed shouldn't get bent out of shape when someone tells them it was a poor choice. I couldn't imagine feeding my kids that stuff, it makes me cringe, just because I feel that way and you don't doesn't make one of us a better or worse parent, there are A LOT worse things to happen to a child then to be formula fed. I don't understand how it's my problem by saying that you made a bad choice. Have some confidence in knowing that you did what you feel is best for your family even though I would roll over and die if I gave my kids formula.

Quoting mcr17:

it doesnt matter what the choice is for FFing, its none of your business

How horrible we must be for considering the feelings of the childs father, who wants to bond with the baby as much as we do.

Apparently you just love your kids more than we love ours.Our children still get just as much nutrition as a child that BFs,

Quoting Anonymous:

It's lazy because people don't want to put forth the effort for the first few days/weeks.

It's lazy because so many moms want to make sure dad can help feed the baby at night.

It's lazy because it doesn't even come close to matching breastmilk and everyone knows this but continue to let their children have second best. My kids are worth more then second best.

you being the only one that can do it doesnt make it harder. not at all.

Quoting Anonymous:

It's more work to breastfeed because nobody else can do it but you, it actually physically drains your energy because your body burbs energy producing milk, BFing babies feed much more often, much more time consuming.

But it's worth the extra work because formula is yucky.
