Were YOU Breastfed?

The New Normal episode made me curious. Were YOU Breastfed as a baby?


I wasn't for more than a couple of days. My mom desperately wanted to, but had no support and terrible latch issues. She tried hard, then finally gave into the pediatrician pushing formula. I had lots of belly problems as a baby (on prescription Nutramagen and mineral oil) and she had PPD because she felt like a failure at it. :/

No. I was fed similac ready to feed. It was the early 80's and my mom told me " oh hunny, it just wasn't done then!"

I don't think she would have handled it well if she had bf us. She is very high strung and gets depressed easily. It's hard for me to be in such constant demand and I'm much more layed back than her.

Yes, my mom had five kids and breastfed all of us but her oldest until at least a year.

I have no idea. My mom has passed and not something I want to ask my dad. We only talk a couple times a year. I know that my grandmother nursed my mom, but not sure how long.

For six months, then switched to formula.  The only one of us my mother did not move to formula at six months was my youngest brother, and he did not tolerate any formula available then so she pushed herself to nine months breastfeeding and moved him to whole milk.  This was back when most doctors were still pushing he whole "milk after six months is no good/different from formula" bit, and she had very little support because her family didn't talk about "that"

No. She never tried either. She is anti breastfeeding really.
