I keep seeing all this "controversy" on the news latel about breast vs. bottle. Some of you know that I didn't breastfeed. I would say it wasn't really an option, because I didn't have enough milk. I am sure there are some people out there who said I should've tried harder, and longer and with more vigor. Truth be told... I was too tired. I pumped vigorously for a week, but with no results with that for a while, as well as trying to take medications to increase which either didn't work, or made me crazy I decided to stop.
Truth be told, I know that breastfeeding IS better.
It's cheaper, it's easier when you're out, you don't have to carry refridgeration with you all the time, it's obviously better for your baby.
I just don't get what the whole brew-ha-ha is though. Seems like the answer is that breastfeed if you can, and if you can't -- you've made that decision. PLENTY of parents don't read to their children, or put them in shotty daycares, or don't play with them, and we don't attack them. Everyone just does the best they can. And I'm pretty sure that 90% of moms feel this same way.
