I am hoping some of our lurkers will come out and comment on this. Tell us what the people around you have said or done that made you feel bad for choosing formula (or resorting to formula because your first choice did not work.)

As more and more moms are initiating BFing, at least in the hospital, I think there are more stories coming from the FFing moms. Here's your chance to share your side of the story!

I've had such experiences but have realized that opening them up for debate (Was the comment really that bad? Was I overreacting? Did that person really "make" me feel bad, or was it my own guilt? Don't I need to own my feelings?) by posting them on a debate board isn't really something I'm interested in doing at the moment. Not sure if others feel the same way; I hope some people are willing to post.

I can see why people would feel vulnerable if they think that comments may have been directed to them in a negative way - and I can also see why you are carefully thinking through the whole thing, in the way that you are. I think your own thinking and the types of questions you are asking yourself shows a very insightful approach.

I was going to wait to see if others posted their stories to post my own but I'll go ahead now.

I can't ever remember receiving any negative comments about my FF'ing when I switched to formula.

No one has specifically said anything to me that is a direct attack on me considering formula feeding.
