Why do so many poor people formula feed? UPDATE: I'M THE DUMBA--

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

It seems like most poor people formula feed. Why would they do that when breastfeeding is free? 

Before you get your dumbass panties in a wad, I'm not calling formula-feeders poor, or saying only rich people breastfeed, or saying you are a bad parent for feeding your kid whatever the hell you want to feed them. (Though there are physical benefits to breastfeeding, sorry, it's true.)

But seriously, why?


UPDATE:

Okay, obviously a huge part of it is that they have to go back to work. And that we're the only industrialized nation that offers ZERO paid maternity leave.

Sorry for all the Jimmies I rustled. I BF and my "extended" BF friend unintentionally makes me feel like a shit mom for only BFing the first 12 months. 

Maybe I should put my time energy and wondering into lobbying for paid mat leave.... ?

You're such a dumbass troll. You also seem to resent nursing, which is gross and creepy.

Just because you were a lazy fat blob using your nursling as an excuse to let your house fall to shit 16 years ago and your husband resented you for not working doesn't make that everyone's situation. 

Besides, since you're definitely not a troll you totally know that after the first few weeks, nursing takes 10-20 minutes per feeding, tops. About the same as prepping and feeding a bottle of formula.

 I'm not trying, I am.  And it's not because of my husbands salary.  Yes, I did breastfeed and yes, I am a SAHM.  And that's pretty much all that is done when you breastfeed an infant, which is blobbing on the couch.  It's just a fact.  Unless you walk around like an idiot with your kid in a sling attached to you like a friggen pacifier.  Hideous.

Haha no you try to portray yourself as superior because your husband makes 350k a year. If you are also a breast-feeding SAHM why did you say I was blobbing around on the couch? You make no fucking sense.

 I'm not the one writing posts on CafeMom trying to portray myself as being superior because I breastfeed.  It's hardly any sort of accomplishment.  You sit on the couch and the baby drinks.  Big fucking deal.  WHO CARES? Nobody.

I am dirt poor and formula fed my kids. I received wic so why wouldn't I? I had no intention of even trying breast feeding.

 If anyone is a dumb ass, that would be you.

Too bad you have to have delusional thinking to justify my comments in your mind.  Why not just accept it for what it is?  Someone who experienced breastfeeding (with 3 kids btw) who does not consider it to be some HUGE accomplishment. 

Cave women breastfed!  It's nothing noteworthy!

 Nobody cares.

How long did you nurse them? 6 weeks? 6 months?

When did I say it was an accomplishment?

Stop saying cavewomen breastfed. We read it the first time; it wasn't some amazing burn.

I don't consider it to be a burn either.  It's just a fact.

Its a slam to humanity that women who breastfeed have so little on their minds that this is what they converse about.  My gosh, watch the news or read a book that's not 50 Shades of Stupidity.  Is there nothing else significant in your life to discuss other than the fact that you have a baby on your tit for years?

So someone who has a different opinion is now considered a troll?

Guess you got nothing else.
