I formula feed my baby. I personally love bottle feeding. I can stick a bottle or two of water in my purse along with some pre-measured servings of formula when I go out with my baby, I don't have to pump, I know exactly how much my baby is eating and that she is getting the nutrients she needs. I can bond with my baby without breastfeeding, and at night I have all the bottles ready with water along with a can of formula at my bedside. It was way easier for me and my daughter than breastfeeding.
I cannot stand the comments from some breastfeeding mothers and others about how "bad" formula feeding is. I have heard comments that imply laziness, carelessness, even neglect from people toward bottle feeding mothers. Bottle feeding mothers are looked down upon and I really don't think that is fair.
Anybody have anything to say about this?
