And I'm pretty sure this is in the Celebrate Bottlefeeding section. Imagine the uproar if someone posted similar about Bottlefeeding in the celebrate breastfeeding section.

I actually want to reply but I am so completely and utterly gobsmacked.
I want to say You try formula feeding (or breastfeeding for that matter) a baby born with a tongue far too big for his mouth. Then come and tell me how easy formula feeding is. But this is not a ****ing contest. Its mothers trying to feed their babies, in the way that is best for them. That doesnt make one superior. It means we all have different circumstances.

I didn't feel guilt, but I felt disappointed my boobs weren't enough and didn't do the best they could.
I switched to FF when DS was about 2.5 weeks old. I knew I'd made the right decision when he drank 100ml the first go and then slept for 4 hours. I knew I wasn't giving him enough and it would have been unfair to keep BFing him when he was hungry (which made him so unsettled).

I had a bit.h of a midwife tell me I was artificially feeding , I was in so much pain after an episiotomy that's all I wanted to hear stupid cow. The other nurses were great and told me it's my choice and not to listen to anyone even my Ob was supportive I bottle fed. At the end of the day it's your choice. I just hate the comments some BF mothers make or when they Bf there kid years ago to make me feel like crap as I bottle fed. I don't make comments about people that BF! I don't care what people do it's there choice.

Well done to all mums whether you bf or ff. Your baby is receiving nutrition and thriving. Please don't feel guilt if you ff your bubba... You've got to do what is best for bubba and mumma.... No point bf'ing if everyone is miserable, that's just setting your family up for failure. If anyone is having difficulty please seek help. If you are unsure who to contact your GP should be your first point of call.

Breastfeeding isnt necessarily harder (for me it was extremely difficult and unbearable in the end) but i have heard many say how easy it was and much more convinient than making up formula, sterilising bottles etc.
Why cant there be support for both? Like a pp said its not a competition.

The previous poster felt unsupported, which is ok. But it's not ok to suggest that because one group of people are supposedly doing tougher, they "deserve" more support. That's her choice, and her post was just as insulting, if not more, than any other.

I was so upset and asked her to leave and never return to my room. How dare she. Thanks to the support of another midwife who was lovely i jumped back on the bf bandwagon the next day but wow.....i couldnt believe she said it. How unprofessional and rude!
