Anyone else get pissed off with people asking "how long are you going to do THAT" as if it is something that makes them feel physically sick???
I find it funny sometimes and have made comments right back about how I'll feed till she starts primary school....
Other times i feel rather irritated and angry...especially when people make these comments in the earshot of my 11 year old that i have tried very hard to show that bf-ing is good and normal.
If i went up to a bottle feeder,stuck my nose up and asked her how long she plans on doing THAT....whilst clearly showing my disgust....she would most likely clobber me...and rightly so !!!
I've bitten my tongue on many occasions after being made to feel like some sort of dirty animal for breast feeding (and ive only ever breast fed discreetly)...I have strong feelings about bottle feeding but would NEVER voice them other than here on CoM.
So...do others have similar experiences ?
Have you ever made comments to other women about the way they feed their child?
Is it EVER ok so say how you really feel?
Since this is a debating forum,I'd like to know how you REALLY feel about breast or bottle...yeah yeah i know it's old news but I'm bored and can't find anything interesting to comment on.
