I just need to vent a little. I met up with an old friend this weekend who I haven't seen for 4 years. We had lunch, shared pics, caught up on things and during this time of course we talked about babies. My LO is 8 1/2 months old and I breastfeed, she doesn't have any but her younger sister has a baby who just turned 1. Anyway to the point, we got on discussion on why I breastfeed when formula is BETTER than breastmilk. I keeping my cool said no breastmilk is the best for baby and for mommy. She of course asked why I thought that. I told her that one thing about breastmilk is that it gives the baby antibodies from me to help fight off infections - her response "Formula has that now and they are better than the ones in breastmilk!" I also told her about all the other benefits and told her about all the benefits for the mother also. She says the only benfit to breastfeeding over formula feeding was that it helps mom lose weight. She said for that reason when she has a little one she will breastfeed for about 3 weeks and that would be it and the formula all the way. I didn't want to argue about this - it is our each indvidual choice and I don't have a problem with those that formula feed (I have tons of friends do), I just have a problem with those who question me on why I am breastfeeding (very argumentively) and doesn't have all not even a fraction of the facts! Sorry, very frustrated and just needed to vent and thanks for letting me share!
