I keep reading that "breast is best". Yes I realise that. I also have read that the only "good" reason not to breastfeed is medical. I chose not to breastfeed, yes. I did it because I was not comfortable with it. I've read that that isn't a good reason and that I'm a selfish mother for not doing what is "best" for my baby just because I was uncomfortable with it. Well. guess what? She is beautiful, smart and has never been sick at all and we have an awesome bond. I love my daughter unconditionally and no one can tell me I made a bad decision by choosing not to breastfeed.
And I'm not saying anything against breastfeeding at all, I am simply saying you can not call someone a bad mother because they choose differently.
