I think you are sadly wrong. Being an older mom now I can tell you I have seen it both ways and honestly it just sucks that moms are so crappy to each other. With my oldest breastfeeding wasn't the in thing to do so I didn't get a lot of support. Now though I have seen the pendulum swing full circle and seen moms getting severe postpartum depression because the pressure to breastfeed and get it right is so high. If moms in general could lay off the guilt trips on both sides and follow the golden rule you know "do unto others..." it sure as heck would help. I am very probreastfeeding but I have no problems standing behind my bottle feeding sisters and wish women would get off their high horses on both sides of the fence.
