IVillage seems to be going through some sort of anti-breastfeeding kick. Here is yet another propaganda filled anti-breastfeeding article shared on iVillage.

Well if I was a mom who wasn't successful at breastfeeding and felt terrible about it, I would probably like the article and find it supportive. But some things just bugged me - like the "many (MANY) breastfeeders use formula". Even though it's probably true. But is it by choice... or because they are convinced by family, friends and the media that they should?
