Re: Why don't people breastfeed?

Women have a right to choose not to. Women have a right to make a commitment or not. Some women have really serious problems.

Personally, I have nursed all three of my birth children. None of them has ever had any formula even though I work full time out of the house. And it's a good thing since all are very allergic to various foods including dairy.

Has it been easy? Not, with two+ years of pumping, about 20 bouts of mastitis, bites, sleepless nights.

Has it been worth it? Absolutely!! It has been a blessing for my kids and seeing them grow and thrive on my milk is nothing short of miraculous.
