i saw this post today and i love it!!

I breast feeding moms but I don't think they need to be glorified for feeding their kids.  ALL moms should feed their kids--whether it be with formula supplementation or with the breast.  Formula feeding has become villianized and that's just wrong.  Formula is not poison nor is it "junk food."  Formula fed children thrive just like breastfed children. 

 

I'm so tired of mommy wars and by glorifiying some moms for doing what they should be doing (feeding their children) while scorning some moms for doing what they should be doing (feeding their children) just doesn't seem to be right to me.

 

A child is fed.  That's really all that matters in the end :)  Kudos to all moms who do their jobs and feed their kids--whether it be formula or breast!

There's glorification and villianisation on both sides. I agree with you that it's the end result - a baby being nourished - that matters.
