What a lame article. No one cares what these celebrities (mostly D listers) have to say about anything. That includes breastfeeding! This is up to the new mom and that is it.

First off, so what some of these moms are saying is: dads can't bond with their baby, because they can't breast feed. I think that's BS, one of the reasons I chose to formula-feed is so he could bond with her too. Just because it's a bottle, doesn't mean that you still can't hold her or rub her forehead or talk to her or love her. Believe it or not, breastfeeding mothers: you can have healthy babies at home even if you're not breastfeeding. Best decision I made was to formula-feed. Second, why in the world do you have a picture of Beyonce talking about BF'ing? You can't BF if you didn't give birth. Everyone knows she had a surrogate. Can't believe she's still telling people she was actually pregnant. Lol wow

What BS saying fathers can't bond with their kids if they're breastfed.  There are a zillion different other things that dads can do.  What a cop out if I ever heard one!

Is there a reason you guys are so angry? If you don't breastfeed, don't read the article about people who like breastfeeding. No one is making you question your own decision. This is an article for people who made a choice and want to share about it. Settle down and go read an article about the benefits of people who enjoyed bottle-feeding and stop being so hateful over someone who made a different choice.

Simons - actually, it's not a cop out. The reasons why I chose not to are: I got way more sleep. I was a much happier mother because I got sleep and was able to get shit done around the house because she wasn't attached to me 24/7, and spend quality time with her rather than holding her and just wishing she asleep so I could sleep. Also, my husband wanted to feed her and believe it or not, wake up with her in the middle of the night. Last time I checked, he doesn't have a pair of tits to do that. Yes, there are other ways to bond a baby, but my point was it seems like ALL BF feel the need to pat themselves on the back because they BF and they're the ONLY ones that are able to bond with their babies and that mothers that choose to formula-feed may as well not even have kids at all.

I dealt with leaky boobs for nearly 3 months, and that was more than enough for me. Glad to be done with that crap. However, my MAIN reason for choosing formula is my husband and I chose to put her on a schedule before she was born. That's right - we put a newborn on a schedule, what a concept! No, she didn't starve to death, no, she wasn't skinny, and she rarely cried. The hospital staff and doctor was aware of our plan and were quite satisfied. That was 6 months ago and she's still on a feeding and nap schedule. We're able to plan our days because of it rather than have chaos and her just randomly feeding throughout the day. And the whole 'it's soooooo much better than formula!!!' Actually. Only the first 48 hrs after delivery is the best for her. After that, it doesn't matter if you BF or formula. Speaking of the first 48 hrs, my daughter wasn't starving because she had food to eat right from the start. My milk didn't come in for 4 days and even if I did want to BF, I wasn't going to be like, 'oh, sorry kiddo! Mommy's milk hasn't come in, so you gotta starve, have fun with that!'

@Paws84...you are more than welcome to state your opinion on bottle-feeding. It worked best for you family and you shouldn't be guilt-tripped into doing it another way. I breastfed both my kids exclusively and I had it just as easy as you did. However, suggesting that there is no medical benefit after the first two days only works if you ignore every single piece of medical research available. Breastmilk is not the only factor in raising a healthy child, but it is much healthier than formula. You don't have to ignore the medical facts in order to make the choice that formula feeding is just fine for your family.

I'm not 'ignoring' it, it's actually what I believe. There's nothing proven stating BF babies are any smarter, healthier, nor do they not grow up and possibly get diseases or cancer later on in life. Does not matter how a baby is fed, as long as they get enough and often enough,

There is actually loads of research supporting breast feeding as better, health-wise, for babies and toddlers. If you choose not to do it, fine. It's YOUR choice to make. You seem angry at breast feeding mothers and seem to be trying to deny the well-known benefits of breast feeding. If you have any guilt over not breast feeding, let it go. Your baby is fine. No one is judging you.

My husband bonds with both our children.  He is on diaper duty, plays with them, etc.  Both children smile and get so excited when daddy is home.  I love breastfeeding. It is giving our children the very best in life.
