Re: Do you really say mean things or expect an explanation?
I don't think if it is the pro BF comments that bother me, but the lack of UNDERSTANDING/COMPASSION of what some of us FF Moms went through to try and BF. BF was EXTREMELY important to me, and I'm well aware of all of the benefits and rewards, that is why I supplemented at the breast, went without bottles and tried everything under the sun for almost five months. I think what bothers me the most is when a BF Mama assumes that I chose formula because it was 'easy', or didn't give my all at BFing, both of which couldn't be further from the truth. I think in general it is just a lack of understanding, or willingness to understand the other side.
