is irresponsible? The first appointment with my first child the dr flipped out when he found out I was breast feeding. He told me it was an incredibly selfish and irresponsible decision and if I INSISTED on breast feeding then I have to at least supplement with formula.

FYI neither my child or I had any health issues, I was on no medication, there was absolutely zero reason I shouldn't have breast fed.

I had a doctor tell me that all my health problems were linked to my mom breast feeding me. Does that count?

Nope. My children's pediatrician encouraged breastfeeding and his wife was a lactation consultant.

Yeah I would totally be getting a different doctor. This one sounds like a dinosaur! Has he done zero continuing education in his whole career?

Sounds like the idiot nurse at the hospital that said if I didn't take the pills to dry my milk up that I would be PG at my 6 week check-up.

I kinda sat there looking like an idiot for the whole appointment, it was like watching Bigfoot sing opera. It didn't compute. On my way out the receptionist nearly jumped out of her cubby thing screaming that I hadn't made my next appointment. I told her I wasn't making one, she said if you don't I have to report you for medical neglect.
I laughed and said I'm going to ANY other doctor in the state.

Quoting AlwaysKISA: Lol no. I'd be getting a new doctor! That's insane.

That is certainly an old school male dr that doesn't know shit. What did women do before formula? I would definitely NOT see him again. That is one of the most stupidest statements I've ever heard. He needs to retire!!!
