Re: Growing up green--this made me so mad!!

Kay gott add something Formula is made in factories that harm the ozone layer right . My breast milk is made right here Whats more toxic a factory w/ a smoke stack or a green mama's milk. In the long run what is better regardless of toxicins or whatever she claimed bm had in it. Whats better for the enviroment?? The book is growing up green right??. If I couldnt bf then maybe organic formula would be a choice. Thats the silliest thing I have ever heard. We sould all write her

nak

I'm seriously thinking about writing her a letter saying how ridiculous it is and sharing the cdc link and asking her to clarify. Her book is a bestseller and it apalls me that new moms trying to live green might take this advice or be scared to bf or something.

Um, didn't the baby just come from living in your same toxin filled body for 9 months? I think it can take it. That is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard.

Aargh!
Couldn't have said it better myself!
