i am so sick to death of these discussions going around and people feeling like they have a right to force their views onto other people and make mothers feel guilty or somehow inadequate for their situation or choice. i mean seriously what gives people the right to think that's ok?
a lady said to me recently that she was very pro-breastfeeding before she had her baby but a short sharp reality check soon followed. she got ill, had no milk and had a reflux baby and now maintains a new mantra of 'fed is best'. i told her at the time i would definitely be using that one.
fed is best people!
fed - is - best.
if you breast feed, great!
if you bottle feed, great!
personally i've chosen to bottle feed my children.
after my horrible experience with my first child and just not getting any milk i decided i wasn't going to put myself through that hell again so all 3 have had bottles as will my 4th child.
for me personally, i actually find it easier and it's my choice.
i wish these fruitless, anger provoking debates would just stop and everyone would just accept each other's choices.
