Re: How does the formula bashing affect you?

Glad I'm not alone in being annoyed by it.

It's really hard for me after everything I went through to be able to breastfeed our son whom we adopted, but then had to stop because of all of his health issues and him needing to be on amino acid formula.

I get so frustrated by those who think they would never use formula, because the reality is they just have never been put in a position where that is truly the only choice besides letting their child starve. There's just a huge lack of understanding and compassion.

I feel like when hard core breastfeeding advocates speak they complete ignore our sector of the population. They think we are exempt from their comments because we have no choice but to formula feed, as though we shouldn't be hurt by what they say. But who wouldn't be hurt by some of the awful things they say?
