HOW you feed your baby is completely up to you. As long as you hold him/her and feed him/her and love him/her, you are a great parent. Do not let anyone tell you how to feed your baby. Agree?

I agree. It's just not my place to say otherwise.

While I do agree, I think breast feeding should be supported and encouraged. A lot of new moms just need help learning how to do it, not people telling them its ok to give formula.

If a mom mentions breastfeeding I do let her know if she wants to breastfeed I am all for it and will spend all the time I have trying to help her. I have 5 kids, I breastfed 3 and formual fed 2. I based my decisions on many many different personal reasons.

Agree.  I am a HUGE supporter of breastfeeding, but everyone has the right to make an informed personal choice without being made to feel guilty.

Agree. I try to educate on breastfeeding if they want the help and are willing to listen but I don't generally force the issue. Well once I did but that was because a doctor told a friend of mine she couldnt breastfeed because her boobs were too small and she wouldnt produce enough milk
