    It reeks of politics and fake news. There's something going on that is beyond "the U.S. is against breastfeeding!" Also, NYT.

    We need a UN resolution that ensures everyone knows that oxygen is required for life.

    We're not talking about abusing the child or not feeding the child at all here where I can for sure judge a woman.
    I wouldn't shame women for not breastfeeding when one of the (now numerous) reasons prevent them. However, should an able-bodied woman actively decide not to breastfeed, yes, I would shame a woman for reaching that decision.

    I understand where you're coming from with your post, and you're right, a lot of those factors are nuanced and not readily accessible without further discussion/knowledge of the person. I'd wouldn't go around to shame a random woman formula feeding. However, if it were an extended family member, or maybe facebook high school 'friend' deciding not to breastfeed when there's nothing preventing her, I'd comment... or like a comment.

    When we take into account all of the positive health implications as identified in page 1 of this thread. While it's not malnourishment or abuse, I think we can all agree that it's not in the infant's best interests. If someone is able to provide something better and cheaper for an infant's health, and chooses not to, at the detriment of their child, I absolutely think that it's shame-worthy.

    Makes sense to me. Another fake news story. Surprisingly this one hasn't gotten much traction that I've noticed...yet.

    Even if she's too stressed, tired, emotionally unable to? Why would you shame a woman for choosing to feed her baby in a way you don't agree with?

    I personally don't care how someone raises their child. Breastfeed, don't breastfeed, not my business. If it were my own child, I'd want it to be breastfed if at all possible.
