Are you ďthat momĒ? You know the one that quit breastfeeding after only two weeks because you were just ďtoo lazyĒ to stick with it. Nobody really knows what was going on behind the scenes Ė the baby that wouldnít latch, the pumping, your babyís constant crying, your own tears shed from trying to make things work.

Wow... just... wow. There are certainly mothers out there and this is by no means a criticism to you who truly honestly educated yourself and gave natural feeding an honest go. But most of the 75% who gave up didn't even try as hard as they did in middle school to learn to paint their toenails. Sorry justmommies you're giving a free pass of excuses here. Fail.

I tried breastfeeding with both my daughters! When I couldn't because of adhesions on my nipples (they just wouldn't come out far enough for them to suck on), I pumped...constantly. I even super pumped when I was home! Pump 20mins, break 30, pump 20mins, break 30 for 6 hours. With both babies, I stopped producing milk around week 6. My mother and grandmother had the same problem. My doctor and lactation consultant both say it is due to hormones. I hate people who assume I was just lazy. I did everything in my power to breastfeed...so painful!!! And then I tried to at least bottle feed with breastmilk. I am not lazy, I physically could not do it.

it is comments like the one "gimmeahint" made that this article is talking about. shame on you for making such a judgemental and broad-brush comment. your authority for making it i assume is that you are familiar with this 75%? you were there when we fought and cried and picked up the pieces of our broken hearts at the struggle it was to get our babies to take and latch onto the breast? kudos to you for sticking it out -I wish I could have...however, some of us feel that having sane and calm feedings are more loving than letting our little ones struggle for weeks on end just to eat.

i find it amusing that some breastfeeding moms who are supposed to be so much more loving because of their natural choice tend to be the most vicious when confronted with others who chose a different path. very rarely do i see a formula feeding mother lash out like this - you might have given your child the best physically but perhaps someone should question your ability to provide good judgement to your child the way you questioned our ability to provide good nutrion to ours.

I agree with "aras14". As moms we all have enough guilt.
