Third try here, com keeps eating my posts!
Affect or effect? Lol :)
So does your moms choice of how to feed her kids affect how you choose to feed yours?
Does a bottle feeding grandma undermine the success of her daughters attempts to breastfeed?
Does a breastfeeding grandma judge a daughter who bottle feeds?
My mom and aunt breastfed, I grew up seeing it was normal and it was an easy choice for me.
Now I know some women who were bottle fed but chose to breastfeed and sometimes their moms were happy or ok with it but usually I hear their moms reacting negatively.
Maybe they feel their daughter is implying they did wrong by bottle feeding?
And on the other side I've seen breastfeeding grandmas totally upset if their daughter chooses to bottle feed.
Does our moms choices affect our choices?
Can they undermine our decisions trying to make us do what they did?
Does our choice greatly affect how our grandchildren will be fed?
