Okay, I better clear things up.

No one in the last year has said anything to me about breastfeeding. My previous post was purely from long past experiences.

When I decided to quit breastfeeding child #2, I stupidly went in a chat room on AOL that was titled "Breastfeeding vs. Bottlefeeding." I am sure it was set up to discuss the pros and cons of each side, but when I went on, it was a total bottlefeeding bashing. I came away from there feeling like the world's worst mom. It was horrible.

But you know what? I am okay now.

I completely agree that breastMILK is best for the baby.

However, breastFEEDING is not always best.

I was a witch when I was breastfeeding. Ask my husband. It just wasn't for me. And it has taken me years to come to grips with that choice. But I was given a blessing after I stopped with child #3, and my Heavenly Father told me that I was fortunate to live in a day and age when I had a choice and that it was okay.

And that is good enough for me.

So I just want all women to allow all other women to make their own choices and to be okay with that.

We are all different.

And that's a good thing!

I spend a lot of time on the computer at babycenter.com on their forums. Man, those moms can get into it. One of my favorite posts was from a woman who reminded us all that there is no super-special AWARD or MEDAL for breastfeeding. I can't say it as cute as she did, but it was great.
