It’s no secret that I breastfed all of my children. I never pumped either. All boob all the time. Yes, I am very pro breastfeeding when it comes to choosing a feeding method. Yes, I will talk about it and give facts. Yes, I will also tell you how awesome it was to nurse through a pregnancy and tandem nurse the girls together. Yes I will talk about extended nursing!
Not too long ago it came to my attention that a former friend (that one I told to kick rocks) was calling me a breastfeeding nazi behind my back. Say what? I think this is the most ridiculous thing ever. Just because I speak about my wonderful experience does not mean that I think that anyone that did not breastfeed is a piece of crap. Give me a break. I live my life and I can only speak from my experience. I was not breastfed, do I think my mom failed me? Uh, noooooo…my mom was given bad information! Doctors informed my mother that she could not possibly breastfeed us because she was allergic to milk and if she couldn’t drink milk she could not nurse us.
I am thankful that there is a lot more info out there for mothers and that doctors are more knowledgeable about nursing a child. I seen young mothers nursing their babies and I am in aww of how far we have come! Funny to think we have come far, when we are really just getting back to basics!
So, do I think you are a piece of crap mom because you chose to use formula? Nope! Do I hope that you atleast gave it a try? Of course I do!
I enjoyed breastfeeding. I will admit there were times that I just wanted to throw in the towel, but it was worth sticking it out for my girls!
Please check out the JuiceboxJungle video located in my sidebar and watch for the breastfeeding poll as well as the video about ashamed to bottle feed.
