    I realise that some people are very pro breast milk, but there are posts on here that almost border the 'ebil formula' and I just wanted to clarify that Pesticides like DDT and other chemicals like Flame retardants are found in Breast milk. If you live in a developed country, even out in the bush - chances are you are being exposed to chemicals, wether you like them or not, wether you eat only organic food or not.

    Donor breastmilk just isn't viable for some people. There is no shame in that. Really we should have proper milk banks available like they do in Europe, until then - well most people would probably choose formula and that is ok. No one is making anyone else choose it.

    I have decided that I love you and want to have your babies. We can decide on feeding strategies later.

    Why am I stranded on a car unable to get to a can of formula? If my breasts are dry or my child won't latch how would the situation be any different? This is a very extremist view and is not helpful to anyone. I honestly don't know what to think about this post

    Ok so for those mums who genuinely can't breast feed.... And are stranded in this broken down car... Not only can they not get to that "precious can" but they also can't get to their donated EBM either.

    My suggestion to you is, think before you post. What you said is extremely offensive and unwarranted. Sleepless nights? Please.

    There's an organic one out now isn't there? Not sure how available it is. That's my main concern, availability. I wanted consistency in milk, after I'd finished mix feeding and went to formula, so chose a popular one for that reason. I don't think there are milk banks around here, nor do I know enough people who are breastfeeding to be able to get it from them. Even if I did, do you walk up to a workmate who happens to have a breastfed baby and ask her to express for you?

    You know I hope you continue to have sleepless nights!

    I myself am about to go to bed to sleep soundly knowing that my DS is a happy healthy FF baby & I'll also say a little prayer thanking the Lord that I don't know you in person.

    And people wonder why so many formula feeding mothers feel horrible about using formula.
