Re: Why don't people breastfeed?
My SIL has already stated she'll never BF or even try. They pretty much think I'm wacko for nursing older DD as long as I did (9 months) and still nursing ydd now (at 7 months...that is not long at all!!). I don't know exactly what her reasons are, I think she just doesn't want to be that attached to the baby, doesn't want to have to get up all night with it (she'll make DH do bottles some of the time I'm sure), and isn't willing to do that much work. Whatever, I think she's just being lazy about it. But she's not even married yet so perhaps I can change her mind!
Oh, and she likes to throw in my face that both my girls get sick even though they're bf, and that one of their cousins was bf and had to have ear tubes put in. Well, it's not like nursing is an automatic shield!! They all go to daycare...that's a big factor too!
