Breast is best
I can't understand why there's even so much debate about this. Of course breast milk is best, that's why it's fkn there. You don't see other animals trying to feed their babies by any other means.
I'm sorry, but you Americans are a bit behind....here in New Zealand it's really strange if someone doesn't breastfeed. Why wouldn't you? It's free for God's sake!!
I think if you are a mother who has made a concious choice to not breastfeed and you really examine the reasons why not, you'll find they're all selfish. Which is not really something you can be for the first few months of a baby's life. I think.
But then again, I am a great believer in personal choice, so whatever. Except it's not just you you're affecting, so bloody breastfeed would ya?!
