how does she decide what "best" is? If everyone from her doctor to her neibour tells her that "breast is best", if everyone "knows that breast is best" - why do up to 25% of mothers still choose formula as their first choice?
It would seem they feel, that in their case, breast is not best - that the "best" for their baby is formula - whether for convenience, health issues, work situations, or personal beliefs.
And if - for whatever reason - breastfeeding does not work out for many moms who try - why does formula become "best" for their baby - and not merely their 2nd choice - not making it a bad choice, since baby obviously has to eat - but a 2nd choice? Why does their first choice no longer seem to matter? No longer important?
