Where I live... people don't look at me funny or anything unusual. When people find out that I BF....they look at me like "good job" since we all know the benefits of BM rather than some imitation milk. I have a friend that has to formula feed her son and when I invited her to attend a BBQ (held by BF mothers) she actually felt uncomfotable to go since she was going to be the only Mom there who doesn't BF and she felt that she would be looked down upon....I tolder her not to worry about it..since I didn't think it was going to happen..but she still didn't go. I personally think that Mothers who had to formula feed their babies are in some ways jealous of us who do have the ability to BF. I'm very proud of BF since now-a-days everyone does the formula thing.
