Are there any universal "duties" a sahp has or a wohp has?

Seriously. I FFed and John went to daycare at 6 weeks old and if we'd been any more attached we could have put Velcro out of business.

There's WAY more to attachment than the form of the food and the work status of Mommy.

It is nice that you hold such strong beliefs, but "seem great" in quotation marks, what on earth is that supposed to mean? I am all for breastfeeding and everything, but it is a feeding method, not the Ark and the Holy Grail rolled into one.

This is what I don't get. The unyeilding belief that a mother's milk is uniquely perfect for her child. I mean are breasts the ONLY organ in our body that runs perfectly and cannot fail? What is it about the breast that makes them so perfect? They cannot be. Every organ in our body has a range of function. Some organs work better than others. Some people are "blessed" with better running bodies than others. I just cannot believe that a mother's breast milk is that perfectly attuned to her and only her child. The human body just doesn't work that way. Some women are bound to produce too much while others will produce too little. Some women are bound to produce very high fat milk and others low fatmilk.....

I personally think that "they" came up with the "uniquely" suited for "my" child to explain away all the differences in mothers milk production.

I do think that breast milk contains things that cannot (yet) be replicated in formula. So, my personal belief, is that - if possible- a mother should give it the old college try. (Have I put in enough qualifiers?) However, not all women are cut out to be breast feeders, and the insane belief that they are, is ridiculous. I am also a believer in "good enough" parenting and formula definitely passing the "good enough" test.

Yes, but the really crazy thing is that I actually DID breastfeed, some of the time anyway :D. I do think it is a good idea, if it works ok, mom is ok etc. Sure is cheap, for one thing. But for crying out loud, it is milk, not a religion.

Oh you poor, poor formula-feeding mothers. Don't you realize the irreversible damage you've done?! Ahhhh. Your poor children. *dialing CYS* (joking, of course)

However, that aside...to the OP: I WOH and Breastfeed. Gasp. Did your head just explode?!

Clearly because your kid only got the snuggles and milk from the tap 3 times a day, instead of 6, he will become a sociopathic serial killer devoid of emotion.
