Is breast feeding fading away because of wic and formula??
I had mentioned pumping before ryker arrives that way its not so hard in the hospital (I breast fed my other 2 and all I know is those first couple days to a week was hard.) My doctor seemed so shocked to hear in general I want to breast feed because I guess alot of moms these days are staying clear of it and going to formula because the government/ wic pays for it and it makes it easier to hand baby off to someone. I always thought that it was becoming more popular myself...maybe its just where I live at now because all other moms I know have nursed or tried nursing and for some medical reason they couldnt continue. Either way I was just curious how it was where other moms live.
