Quoting Minion:" I never breastfed. I never tried and I didn't want to. I had absolutely zero interest in breastfeeding. ... [snip!] ... first born I caught a lot of shit on here about it, but I did whatever was best for me and was (and am) happy with my choice."

I'm not planning on breastfeeding and I've already gotten a lot of nonsense for it because it's not because of a medical reason. I've had several people tell me that when I "decide to get educated and change my mind" that my baby will be better off. I'm not going to starve my child please don't act that way.



Also shaming for breastfeeding is horrible. Why is everyone so interested in what women do with their breasts? It's ridiculous.

I was told Im so selfish for not wanting to breast feed. And that I must not care too much for my child since I didn't even want to try, and a whole bunch of other junk.
I was like, "She's getting fed. She's not starving or being abused. What's the big deal?"

I'm a bottle feeder. I can't imagine someone having the nerve to say something negative to me about it. I'm glad I never had to deal with that.
