Is there a new pregnancy or baby in your family! Congratulations!



At some point during pregnancy, people start asking mom how she is going to feed her baby?



If mom decides to use formula, people ask her why didn't she breastfed?



If mom decides to breastfed, people ask when is she going to wean?



If mom is unable to breastfeed, others may make her feel guilty!



How is such a personal decision any business of complete strangers??



Come and check out the Breastmilk vs Formula Debate board and find out what others are saying, and why they think this choice is so important!



Here are some of the latest topics:

My mother never did any breastsfeeding with any of her kids. she said it is because it would have made her breasts ugly. so me not being a mother yet I do not know what is better for the baby. I would never not breastfed for a selfish reson. and have no one to ask what is right. my mother and I are not close because we are not .if she breastfed would that have changed things?
