'Breastfeeding Moms' is quite misleading. I AM a breastfeeding mom, so by that name and a lot of the posts.... I DO belong here. But by a lot of the guidelines and condemnation being spouted at GOOD mothers.... I don't and it makes me very sad. :( It seems to be a very exclusive and only supportive of ONE type of parenting group. Negating all other methods.
I don't 'support' formula and have only used it a handful of times in my 8 years of parenting, but it (IMO) isn't the devil. I totally understand how if someone is switching entirely to formula then this wouldn't be a place for them, but if they are breastfeeding at ALL... they are still a breastfeeding mom.
I'm sure this won't be received well by most here, but I had to get it out. For the most part I really do enjoy being a part of this community. :)
