God Is My Co-Pirate: I'd just like to take this moment to give a special "fark you" to the old crone who came up to me while I was with my daughter in a café and hissed, "I hope that's breast milk in that bottle."
busy chillin': trotsky: I would have went all internet tough guy on them. Unless I'm feeding my kid a beer with a nipple attached, STFU.All I would say is it better be a hop bomb; Double IPAs help 'em sleep.
MyKingdomForYourHorse: I just shot milk out my nose
Cortez the Killer: A guy I worked was in the grocery line buying formula for his young-un. The lady behind him started going on about how breast milk is soooo much better for the baby. He turned around an looked her in the eye and said "My wife just died...thanks."He said the color ran out of her face after that remark./No woman actually died in this story

I found the bottle on the floor of the bus on the ride over..."Or, "As long as the airport security guards think it is, Allah willing"...
Altair: Could someone explain this nonsense to a 30 yr old stoner with no kids? Please don't make me Google breast feeding news.
what_now: Cybernetic: what_now: When I was in a Wal Mart in Central Florida (let that sink in for a while) a woman with three filthy children started talking to me. My friend, who was one of those "Awww...babies" types, asked how old the littlest one was. Answer. 8 months. I asked what was in the bottle. Answer: root beer.So you know. Worse thinks that formulaJust out of curiosity, do you remember where the Walmart was?/Central Floridian.Ocala.

MeanJean: You shouldn't pick on someone for being fat because there might be a whole host of medical problems making them fat that you don't know about, and they might not be able to help it, just like some non-breastfeeding mothers may not be able to breastfeed. So who the fark are you to judge anyone?To put it another way, mind your own farking business about other people's bodies.
mesmer242: kiwimoogle84: CapeFearCadaver: kiwimoogle84: sheCSS- I was actually told the other day that I shouldn't have my baby shower too far in advance from my due date, in case she dies after the shower in utero, so it's "not embarrassing" and "gifts don't go to waste." I was absolutely appalled. This was a family friend I was inviting to said shower. I screamed how effing dare you right in her ear and hung up on her. Worst thing I ever heard in my life./endrantOh, dude. That's not a family friend, that's a family frenemy. I'm glad you used your pregnancy hormones for their intended purpose./also knocked up//so glad I don't have to suffer through a baby shower this time around
God Is My Co-Pirate: Also a WTF to the lactation consultant who told me off for supplementing with formula, saying very snottily, "You do realize that will make her sleep more, don't you?"
doubled99: After the birth,YOU HAD ONE JOB
mesmer242: mama2tnt: theorellior: but when the teeth come in, isn't that nature's way of saying, "Hey! Feed me REAL food now!"?Yes, which is why most people start solid foods in addition to breastmilk/formula around then. But babies aren't capable of getting enough calories just through solid foods until later. And the consistency of breastmilk doesn't stay the same over time... it becomes more watery as the baby gets older. Babies need water in addition to nutrients, but giving them just water before they're a year risks water intoxication. It's not like people who use formula stop at six months when the baby gets teeth either.Most kids bite once after they get teeth, get startled by the reaction and then don't do it again. My kiddo did that around six months like normal. Then around 15 months she wanted to wean so she started biting AND trying to grab for a milk bottle so I knew it was time. Fine by me.

octopied: I don't go on the net and read columns daily about "Breastfeed all the time, you terrible mom", and have never heard it come up in public
orbister: It beats me why anyone who could breast feed would chose formula. Breast is free and there's no faffing about with sterilisation, carrying stuff around, getting supplies and so on. That said, there are lots of perfectly good reasons for not being able to breast feed, and in those cases you're hardly going to let the kid starve to death.
