I don't feel a need to put her down to make myself feel superior.

I also WOH full-time in public schools. Every day, I see kids who are abused and neglected, kids who were literally starved as infants and are now in the foster care system, kids who were exposed to drugs in utero and still live in homes where they're exposed to drugs and violence daily, kids who are never in any type of car seat and have only eaten fresh fruits when they're served in the school cafeteria, kids who have never seen a book or held a crayon before the first day of kindergarten... and I work in a good school system in one of the wealthiest counties in the US.

So, I guess I'm a bit jaded, but seriously, I cannot figure out why we care about loving parents who choose to formula feed.
im a mom who...ERF my kids. my 4 & 3 yr olds r still rarfacing & will b untill they no longer can in there radians. my kids r also extended harnessed. my 6 yr old still harnessed is in his radian but my 9 yr old no longer is harnessed in his frountier 85. he out grew it by hight. now he is boostered in it. i cloth diaper & will never put my kids in sposies. i select vax, i do circs my boys, i hs. but... all my kids were ff. i never once bf aney of them. shocker isnt it. i agree that there r worse choices out there that parents can do & thats why i could care less if a parent ff or bf. all i care about it the child is being loved & cared for. not being abused.
