"Natural Childbirth" just became snobbish to me.

Some would even say that giving a pacifier or feeding breastmilk in a bottle was not considered exclusively breastfeeding. I am a big supporter of breastfeeding, but I understand that it is not for everyone and I don't judge moms either way. When it comes down to it, whatever works best for mom and baby is the best way even if it doesn't fit into other people's standards, at least that is how I look at it.
Lol, what dummies. A pacifier makes breastfeeding invalid? How can you take anything seriously that they say. They are not even close to the same, except both a breast and a pacifier go in a baby's mouth. So do blocks, teething rings, dust bunnies, bibs, basically anything within hands reach. Oh no! Breastfeeding CANCELLED.
