not really. I know a ton of bottle feeding moms, including myself, and none of us are like that. My milk didn't come in fully because our dd decided to come over a month early and had to be kept in NICU, i pumped every 2 hours and still got barely anything out, she was in an incubater so it's not like i could attach her to the breast to help it come in. Now that she's home, i think breastfeeding would be the easier option, you put the kid on ur boob and its done, lol. Nope, every 3 hours I'm up heating water for a few seconds, put the formula in, shake the bottle, test the temp, find a bib and finally get to feed her, usually I'm doing this while holding her trying to get her calm because she still has some breathing issues when she is upset. So definitely not lazy, theres more to it than that. And as for your disconnected comment, idts lady. The first time i got to give her a bottle was when she was a few days old in NICU, still in her little incubater and my hubby actually had to take over for me because i cried so hard my body was shaking. It was her first bottle ever after they took out her feeding tube. I'm anything but disconnected from my kids.

Ok

I think it's time to go back to my "looking for my dream house" search online. I'm slightly confused by most the post on here tonight. :\

Formula should be made with boiling water, not warm.

Every mother wants/needs to feel that her way is the best way. if not then she would  be doing her child a huge injustice in her eyes. Unfortunatly that means we often are very passionate about our choices. if not this subject then another.  I accept the positive and leave the negative when it comes to posts like that. :)

Not when she was still hungry. She wanted more and I didn't have it.
