That's ridiculous. I could NOT breastfeed. I tried for over 2 weeks but he just would not latch on because my nipples are sort of inverted. so he had to have expressed breast milk.
What would I have done if there was no bottles??

We know where you stand hypocrite have fun letting your kid chug down that formulayou are being very selfish by not getting him donor milk

I know right lol. :D Snape doesn't put up with any bullshit lol.
Quoting ♥ my~boysX3+1♥:" Don't forget to add except to working mothers. "
well that's a relief :lol:
I don't have the luxury of being able to have my kid attached to my nipple for the 8 hours a day that I work.

That's what that chick said. That scripts should be required except to working mothers.

That's not what I said
I forgot to quote, but I am sure it will be obvious who this is for. With the nerve you have to try to insult people who are using formula, while you use it yourself is absolutely ridiculous. Unless, you moved to be near a milk bank, put ads up for donations needed, walked door to door to see if any of your neighbors were nursing and had some to spare, had your local news do a segment for you, did online searches and put ads there, there is no way you are not a hypocrite in its finest form. You think me saying that is crazy? Well, that is a lot less crazy and judgemental than you. Since you did not do absolutely everything to avoid giving your child 'poison', you are in no position to be so harsh. Have your beliefs, but don't make a fool outta yourself. (oops, too late) I had a co worker tell me the other day breastfeeding is disgusting. I'd like to see yall go at it. Oh, no need to try to tell me about myself. I breastfed, and would use donor milk if I needed. I just hate for people to be so outright ignorant with their judgement of others. This is not the way to advocate for your cause. It has a chance of turning people away though.
*I'm not exactly sure how the prescriptions would play out, but I truly hope they wouldn't penalize working women.*

I agree with all this.
I think we have less negative publicity for BF than in the states but it takes time for change to happen so BF rates remain still quite low. I only care that the parent does what is best for their kid and as your experience shows what's right for one kid isn't for another.
I was all prepared to BF and then couldn't so I had the whole guilt thing about not breastfeeding which made ppd worse but at least for the moment Calum is doing well so I'm happy.

That was in response to a comment about working women. I said that they shouldn't be penalized.

Exactly. It's not about what is good for the entirety of the group. It's about what is best for YOUR child. You have to make your own decisions because nobody else is looking out for the well being of your child but you. I hate how judgemental these things can get. Separate issue but I know all too well how it feels to be forced to do something I didn't want to do. When I was BF my son, my sister had a hayday because I was BF my son out in public around her. I mean, I understand some women are uncomfortable by it but it wasn't like I was walking around completely naked with the kid to my boob. I had a wrap that covered my entire stomach :? Well at that time she didn't say much but with my last daughter, she had the nerve to tell me that I wasn't ALLOWED to BF my kids around her because it made her too uncomfortable and she basically said I had to formula feed while she was around. My sister and I don't get along for many upon many reasons but that was the icing on the cake. Just because SHE felt too uncomfortable to BF her own children didn't mean she had the right to tell me I couldn't BF mine bc she felt weird. :roll: Some opinions are just better kept to themselves.
Quoting Bree Ilana:" I would like to say one thing. I'm not a parent so maybe my opinions are invalid but to call someone ... [snip!] ... of will and whatever her other kids name said that. You are a c**t. To push your opinions and ideas on someone else is wrong."
No, she thinks it selfish to not even use donor milk. But shes using formula.
Stupid b***h didnt get her birthing experience nor was she able to BF the way she intended so now she has to project all her self hatred and inadequacies onto other mothers. Its pathetic.
I'll put my two tidbits in. I BFed for a month and stopped because of stupid doctors. I hated that I had to put her on formula, BUT if we had a donor bank nearby and I had the money for it....I honestly probably wouldn't. :? I don't like bodily fluids and the thought of feeding my child someone else's disgusts me to no end. AND there's the fact that mommie's milk is made for HER baby. Yeah, it's okay to feed to another baby, but it still won't be the same.
Formula is there as a choice. I'm glad I have MY choice. Call me a selfish b***h. I give no f**ks. My child is healthy and happy and THAT'S what matters.
