Yes, I've always hated this question and found it intrusive. I think it's a judgement-laden question. Why do people ask in the first place if not to (even silently) judge the response and the mother? It doesn't "mean" anything to have breast or bottle-fed a baby - it's not like once you give your answer the person who asked can say "oh, yes, now I understand why xyz happened ..." It's not actually that interesting, either. I'm wondering if the question will come up on my son's high school enrolment form in over a decade's time. I also take exception to "Did you have a c-section or a normal birth?" [In my hospital phone interview at 16 weeks the midwife asked me if I was anticipating a normal delivery. No, hopefully the most abnormal, scientifically and medically bizarre delivery ever witnessed! What exactly is a normal delivery, I wonder?! And a stranger in a shop asked me, when I was 36 weeks, if I was going to have a c-section or give birth the normal way, and did I know that some women actually booked their c-sections ahead of time these days? Ah yeah, because I'm one of them. For private medical reasons!!) And the final question: IVF baby? (Asked while looking judgementally at my 38-year-od face, even though that's not actually the reason.) My husband has never been asked any of these questions. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
