I just happened to spot an advertisement on the side of a debate thread page for Nestle Points.

Just wondering, for those who do boycott Nestle, if you've seen this or if it's concerning to you? Is this new (I've never noticed it before) and if it's not, have you ever contacted JM to express your dislike of it?

I mean otherwise why else would you say "do you feel that by formula feeding you are encouraging such behavior?' I mean c'mon....

Yeah. Exactly.


Formula feeding moms never try to make BFing moms feel bad...but BFing moms sure like to give FF moms a hard time.

Wow... I'm cracking up over here! Formula mothers never try to make breastfeeding mothers feel bad?!?! Have you read these debates?

What I don't understand is women who FF and get defensive about it. If you're comfortable with your decision and think it's best for you and your child why would there be a need to always be on the defensive, by saying BFers always try to make FF feel bad. If you were really truly comfortable with your decision whether it be FF or BF it wouldn't matter what others say. Just a thought.

I also agree that it is debatable about FF not making BFers feel bad. I've had my share of comments in IRL for nursing my 14month old.

Holy crap ... seriously? Can't we all just agree that SOME BF moms judge FF moms, and SOME FF moms judge BF moms... but the majority of people are sane rational normal human beings??

Gah, why does every thread in this forum have to turn into which "side" makes the other "side" feel more like crap. BOTH sides have people in their category that are snotty, snide, rude, uneducated, idiotic, and just plain mean. By the same token, both sides have plenty of normal, compassionate, interesting, intelligent and pleasant people.

ARHGHGH.

Why doesn't anyone ever say this to BFers? "If you were really secure in nursing your two year old you wouldn't get so upset." No, it's just FFers that are expected to stoically accept abuse and criticism.

No, this version of VB can get buggy and start combining page views for multiple threads or just plain invent numbers. It happens all the time on another board where I am a frequent poster, it uses the same version of VB.

Ummm I think she said (and you quoted her as such): "If you were really truly comfortable with your decision whether it be FF or BF it wouldn't matter what others say."
So I am pretty sure she covered that. Just saying.....

Well, ****. It does indeed.


Remember what I said about it being a bad few days and the 'ol thinker not working so well? Yeah. Apologies to blondie-lox.
