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!

Every new mother I know has extensively researched BF vs FF before they make their decision.

What I'm saying, is that you rarely here the opinion "if BF doesn't work for you or doesn't fit your life, then there's nothing wrong with FF for whatever reason you want to".

But the opinion that "I have considered the risks of not breastfeeding and have decided to use formula" IS commonly accepted here.

I think that this type of environment by nature makes women feel like they are going to be judged if they FF or people are going to think bad of them if they FF, even if people don't ACTUALLY feel that way.
