I just want to vent, no comments required. I know it's none of my business, etc...I just want to vent.
So I have seven friends who are pregnant or have had babies in the last month. I've asked each of them what their feeding plans were, and they ALL said formula. When I asked why, out of curiosity, they said they didn't know anything about breastfeeding and were scared. I talked to them and four of them have decided to breastfeed. Awesome! The others have said things like "it will make my boobs saggy", "I don't want a kid on my tit all the time", etc. WTF?! I feel like that's incredibly selfish. I don't really understand how, when given accurate information and made aware of how beneficial breastfeeding is for both mother and baby, a woman can still be selfish enough to choose to FF. I don't get it! Why wouldn't a mother at least try? They all have supportive families, they are all SAHM...I just don't understand.
That's my vent. I don't understand why a mother would choose to feed an inferior product when she knows how beneficial breastmilk is. I don't get it.
And again--this is a vent, and I understand that as long as the baby's being fed...all that.
