Re: i just want to ask...why only when its medical?
I don't personally believe that ff should only be for medical reasons. I'm a bf fan, too, but I still think it's a personal choice. My SIL was too weirded out to bf, so ff from the start. That's her choice and her child. And I personally believe that those that set out to make you feel bad for how you feel are in the wrong.
You are no less of a mother because of how you choose to feed your baby.
