do you judge a formula feeder?

I was approached several times by other mothers when my son was a baby, it bothered me and I thought it quite rude. 

DO you think it's ok to say something?

Do you judge moms that formula feed without knowing why?  

Would you ever ask a stranger why they formula feed or lecture them?

I formula feed. Never had a stranger come up to me and make comments about it either.

No, I judge parents who neglect and abuse.

I mind my own buisness. I would never say anything to them, but I do wonder why they are not breastfeeding.

Personally I think it's nobodies business but babies mommy. It is rude to think you have any day whatsoever in the way someone else feeds their baby. Keep your opinion and advice on it to yourself if it wasn't requested. :)

I breastfed both of mine at first. I have to take a seizure medicine to prevent my seizures, and their bodies couldn't handle it even though I took it while pregnant.

I have had people come up to me and make remarks, and my responses are usually dripping with sarcasm.

I support breastfeeding 100%, inclusing nursing in public, but if someone pisses me off about what I do, I deliberately aim to piss them off too. So I usually make some smartass remark about sex offenders and telling them next time if they don't want to be judged they shouldn't judge others. It gets the point across.

So long as your child is being fed, why would I care?

I am confused about the correlation between breastfeeding and sex offenders?

No because I WAS a formula-feeder and even if I was a breast-feeder I still wouldn't judge a formula-feeder!

Im a breastfeeding mother but i dont feel like its up to me to judge anyone, its any womans choice and i dont have to agree with anyone but i still dont have to disrespect their choices even if its something that i would never do. 

Hope that makes sense
