My mom told me that it was the opposite back in the 60's when I was born. No one breastfed because the word of the day was that formula was best. One of my mom's friends refused to breastfeed her babies because she felt it was "barbarbic," like what animals do.
Nowadays, it's like there's so much pressure to breastfeed no matter what. I'm not sure who decides these things for women..... Can't we decided what is "best" for ourselves??
