Came across this in a link from another blog and it really reasonated with me in a way. blog post
I until the last few weeks was a diehard boobie feeder. Didnt see any reason why most people couldnt BF and saw FF as mostly a choice not a need. Now that new DD is quite literally allergic to my breastmilk ( i was making her sick to the point she was hospitalised) and we are having to rely on prescription formula to feed her I am seeing the other side.
Why should i have to justify it to strangers who seem to think its their business why I am FF?
If i dont tell them DD's medical history and i dont feel i have too and just throw out a I couldnt BF does that then make me one of those 'making excuses in the eyes of women like these?
And last of all why out of all of those things do i care what some stranger in a parenting room thinks of me?
