I've been breastfeeding nearly continually for almost 5 years, that's no small task, but sure if I hadn't breastfed them, or for that long, they'd still be beautifully healthy little people.
But then some days I'm like "got dressed today! Wooo! Go me!!!"

Thanks for the responses. I just saw it as feeding a baby in much the same way that I get a meal on the table or prepare food for lunch boxes now. Some days it's a real chore, so I can see that people would feel some pride about getting through. 5 years is a long time, definitely can see that as something to be proud of.

I think whether you bf or ff, if you want to celebrate it, great. Bfing can mean over coming lots of hurdles. Ffing can mean making a difficult and painful decision knowing it's what's best for your child and you.
I don't have an issue with celebrating either. It's the self righteous rubbish that annoys me. Bfing doesn't make you a better parent, nor does ffing.

I think it's fine to celebrate it, and I do think tons of women overcome many hurdles however they feed their child which is worth a metaphorical high five now and again

What I don't understand is why is it assumed that FF is a difficult decision or an opinion along those lines? I chose FF because I didn't want to BF and there was no guilt nor difficulty with my decision. Didn't anyone else feel that way or am I the only one? Granted I never got milk but if I had, I still would have chosen FF.
Anyways, sorry ... a bit off topic

If you ff from birth your milk won't come in fully usually as its the baby drinking the colostrum that stimulates milk supply.
It's great you are happy and comfortable in your choices- but we are all different

For a mother who already feels bad about not breast feeding, having others imply that she's failed as a mother must be terrible.
