    The WORLD health organisations guidelines are set to include third world countries without sanitation, in which case breast would definitely be the better option.

    But can anyone HONESTLY say that they can tell the difference between a formula baby and a breast fed baby? And later in life? Do you smugly say at work you aren't catching the cold that's going around because your mum breast fed you till you were 2? Do you think the top of the class kid is smart because they had breast milk? The top scorer in my school was formula fed. I was too and I'm a scientist now. I don't believe I've been harmed.

    Kudos to everyone who breast feeding is working for. But it won't make your kid better than mine. She's going to save the world one day, don't ya know?

    This thread makes me very angry!!!!!!

    I tried my A$$ off to BF my son! I even went to the point where I expressed every single 2 hour feed for him for two months. My sanity took a massive hit due to this. I couldn't leave the house, all I did was express, clean expressing cr@p, Feed, then do it again over and over.

    But yeh what an absolute cr@p mum I am. How dare I not try hard enough.

    Oh yes the cleaning... I'd forgotten that part. Up during the night, feed the baby the bottle (45mins), express (30 minutes), clean and steralise it (10 minutes). Then back into bed for half an hour sleep before she wakes up again.

    exclusive pumping is bloody hard. Not only do you obviously pump constantly, but then you give it in a bottle and newborns drink slow. It's so labour intensive. At about the 3 month mark I caved and put him on formula. When you have a severe reflux baby that screams 12 hours a day, and a 3 yo desperate for attention, spending your life pumping is just so difficult.

    Plus, I was starting to lose my supply by then... don't feel bad Jez, 3 months is a long time exclusively pumping, I've been there and it feels like an eternity

    This is getting ridiculously petty.
    Lambjam, who are you to tell me enough? You know absolutely nothing about me, and after that comment, I don't care to know a thing about you.

    What is this? A battle about who has had a roughter time? Talk about childish.

    Ds is breast fed (23 months) and catches ever.damned.flu in existence , we were hospitalised at 7 weeks with serious bronchiolitis and the first words out of the pediatricians mouth were 'is he formula fed' (no hello or intro or anything, I would have sh@t myself if he WAS formula fed from the way she spoke) she didn't know what to say when I said no he's exclusively breast fed, all she could say was oh well imagine how sick he'd be if he wasn't its rare for breast fed babies to get this sick. (stupid cow)

    He also gets croup and respiratory infections and a rash from amoxycilin ... guess my boobies never got the 'dont get sick' message :/

    Its the one 'fact' about breast feeding tht ****es me off

    I think it's decrepit and tiresome and kind of like the song that never ends.
    Women who breastfeed are not smug.
    Women who don't are not failures.
    We're all just doing what we think is best for our family the best way we know how to.

    I can't thank you for some reason, but yes expressing is a bastardly ******* of a ********' *******.

    Much empathy to anyone that has had to do it long term.

    I hope your not referring to me. I'd hope that telling my side of this BF debate is not considered competing.

    I absolutely struggled to get through that time in my life. And it's people like the ones on here who made me feel guilty when my milk stopped. And I didnt/don't deserve that b****.

    And for people to say I didn't try hard enough ARE the ridiculous ones!!
