I see all these moms around me posting pics after delivery and so many do not want to breast feed. I just don't understand them, after delivery naturally you feed your baby right? Well these moms have to wait for someone to bring them a bottle. I just dont get it. I know this sounds really weird but its instinct to bring them to the breast to feed and nurture them. Why is that so many choose other wise. I am getting really sickened by this. Every where I turn every baby is formula fed, the responses are their is no difference between breast and formula. So many make horribly uneducated choices for their infants that have dangerous consequences and they swear there are no risk, but yet we are in the wrong for trying to educate. I am just so baffled by all this. Sorry to rant just curious what others think.....

i agree with you. it is commonly believed that formula is "just as good" as breastmilk. of course it's not, but many moms probably just can't own up to the real reason the formula feed (oh my child was allergic to my milk...come on the chances of that are less than 1%!)
