16 and Pregnant (the TV show) and Breastfeeding
16 and Pregnant is one of my day-time TV guilty pleasures. On a recent episode a teen couple was arguing about breastfeeding.
It went something like this:
The guys said "you're the one who chose to breastfeed"
The girl replied "we don't have the money for formula so I had too, so there..."
Is there really a misconception that breastfeeding is something only poor people do because they can't afford formula? I had never thought about it before.
