My mom didn't breastfeed because she said when I was born, it was looked at like you didn't have the money to buy formula so it was a social status thing. My dd has reflux and was diagnosed at 1 month old. Within 24 hours my grandma said my milk was probably bad and I should give her a bottle...and my MIL said I may have to put on her a bottle of formula if my milk was causing it.
