As a lot of you are aware, this is very rewarding for mommy and baby. BUT sometimes there will be that certain someone that has to find fault and criticize and make you feel inadequate. There was for me. So, if you find yourself in this predicament, just ignore it and know that you are doing what you want and are to be commended for making a good choice.

Really? Someone made you feel inadequate for breastfeeding? I don't know your age but my mother-in-law has told me she had very little support when my husband and his brothers were born.

Hi javaluver..Yes, I guess years ago it was considered (as I was told) filthy and sick. I breastfed all my babies and was proud to do so and didn't pay attention to the bad remarks. I am 70

People are so judgemental , A mom knows what's best for her baby ! I think breast feeding is fantastic for a the baby it creates a wonderful bond but would never judge someone who isn't breast feeding..

Oh yes, the putdowns I had to go through with all my children because I chose what was normal and healthy.

I personally did not choose to breastfeed but for anyone who does, its perfectly natural to do so,you are feeding your baby and no one as the right to judge you for that

People are jerks sometimes. I nursed my kids and no one ever put me down. I did have a few people ask me to nurse elsewhere like a separate toonie the bathroom(even though I had a cover).

Interestingly, my grandmother told me that back when she has her first few kids, in the late '40's, that she did not breastfeed because it was not 'en vogue'. It was something the 'poor' did and that a proper woman formula fed. She had large gap between her kids and society looked at it differently and so did she, she breastfed those kids a bit.

Wow usually it is the other way around and people are judgemental towards mother's who formula feed. I only have praise towards me for breastfeeding because it is such a commitment and very healthy for the baby and the mother. I found people to be very supportive too when I need to feed my daughter in public. Don't let anyone make you feel bad . Do whatever you need to do for you and your baby.

I cannot say how much I respect those mothers who are breastfeeding their babies. I don't know too much about the benefits but the ones that I do know are enough for me to be convinced that you should for as long as you can!
It makes me sick how many people are against it and make mothers feel bad for doing it.
It makes me equally as sick when mothers are taking advantage of the situation and throwing it in peoples faces (not literally, that's weird) and demand their approval in a negative way

I breastfed both my kids for a year each. While yes, it was for sure a commitment I am glad I did. It is truly the best for baby. I applaud all women for sticking it out with breastfeeding and for the women who try but cant. It is horrible that people can be so judgemental towards it when its the natural (and best) thing for you.
