I don't think I agree that bottle feeding moms need *more* support. Honestly, there is plenty of support for bottle feeding. And let me say before going any further that I did formula feed my girls. However, I would have much rather exclusively breastfed, but that wasn't happening, so I had to formula feed. They had plenty of info and formula at the hospital.

I think there needs to be breastfeeding support because it is difficult to do (for some babies)!

I do think there can be negativity toward bottle feeding moms (or even breast feeding moms, in areas of the country), and that needs to be done away with. You just don't know the situation of the person you may be judging. Maybe they are bottle feeding b/c of health issues, adoption, etc. You just don't know so don't judge.
