We all know that scientifically BF is best. I recognize that to be a proven fact...HOWEVER that does not give anyone the right to look down on another mother for what she chooses for her child. The holier than thou attitude that some (didn't say all) moms have towards this topic is just ridiculous. It is every individual's right to choose what is best for them and their child for whatever reason may it be. It does not in any way shape or form make one mother better than another and those who think it does need to step off the soapbox. I did not BF. It wasn't an option for me for reasons I don't need to justify to anyone. My children are still happy, healthy and thriving regardless. My SIL gave me so much shit with both of my kids for not BF and the irony of it is that the same person who told me my kids would be malnourished, stupid, and overweight (my kids are fab thanks!) for bottlefeeding...feeds her BF kids poptarts, hotdogs, french fries, and junkfood. I'm pretty sure if you asked a Dr whose kids are actually healthier at this point in their life, and likely to be so as adults...it wouldnt be hers. So basically my point is that i thought CM was supposed to be a place to share not to point finger through a computer scream. If i write a post that i beat me kids you can call me a bad mom go for it, but as much as some of you would like to beleive so bottlefeeding is not an equivilent offense. We ALL do our best as parents, or at leats I would hope so, and it's really no ones place to throw insults. Its one thing to disagree and state ones opinion in an educated manner...it's another to throw insults, sling names, and act like trash.
