Boob or bottle? The battle.


It seems that one of the biggest battles in new mommy circles is breastfeeding vs formula feeding.  There is such contention that makes it seem like you're a failure as a mom if you can't or choose not to breastfeed.  This is a war I just don't understand.

5 months ago I was on the exclusively breastfeed bandwagon.  All the studies say that's what's best for my baby and why wouldn't I give him that?  Couple that with the fact that I just hate formula and the choice was simple.  Why do I hate formula so much?  It's not that I'm superior to anyone else who chooses formula, it's for far more petty reasons.
