Whoever wrote this is an asshat. It doesn’t take 6 weeks for formula feeders to get used to making their feeds. We get it after the first try. It’s easy as fuck. It takes effort, yes, but not much and anyone complaining is lazy as fuck.
This picture is worded in a way that can be deemed offensive.
Oh yeah because I feel sorry for feeding my child after my supply nearly diminished do to me juggling multiple surgeries and finishing my senior year. Haha, no. People need to get the stick out of their ass and get off their high horse’s.
This post has nothing to do with being on a ‘high horse’ A woman can’t be proud she breast feeds without being called a formula shamer. It’s BULLSHIT. This doesn’t have anything to do with what is best for baby or healthier it’s talking about CONVENIENCE. because yeah breast feeding is easier, no bottles to clean, don’t have to get up to do it, doesn’t take any time to make you can just instantly stick your kid on your boob. THIS IN NO WAY SHAMES YOU. Getting pissed off at this post is like getting pissed off and a mom who has a potty trained kid and she says “man I feel sorry for moms that have to change diapers” She not fucking shaming you for having a fucking kid she’s just sayings its fucking easier
But God forbid someone be proud of what they can do, Oh no need to keep quiet about breast feeding because any mention of it is just way too mean for the formula moms.
"don’t have to get up to do it," so do you stay in asleep then when your baby is feeding? if so that is every single shade of lazy. Yeah, us formula feeders have to get up and wash bottles, then sterilize bottles, then boil water, then pour it into the bottle, then add the powder, shake it and leave it to cool but hey guess what? That is no reason to "feel sorry for moms who have to make formula" as stated in the photo. Maybe we like it. Maybe making our childs food is fun for us.
And yet breastfeeders ALL formula shame, except you’re breastfeeding shaming?? Because that makes sense?
This graphic wasn’t made to shame formula moms. It was MADE to help keep the breastfeeding moms going. Because breastfeeding is hard as fuck. It does get easier, yeah, but it’s fucking hard at first. It hurts, it’s exhausting, it’s frustrating, and then it slowly starts getting better, and those who stick with it are usually like “man, I’m glad I didn’t turn to formula” as they pull their baby into bed with them and they doze off together while baby is nursing.
And if I wanna lazily nurse my child to sleep while dozing off myself, I will, bc with a baby sucking my lifeforce out calorie by calorie for hours a day, I damn well deserve to be lazy. Like seriously.
Some of us DON’T like prepping bottles. Some of us DO like prepping bottles. But you constantly talk about how formula feeders get shamed (just bc someone says “breastfeeding is easier”!) and then turn around and do the same damn thing and that, my friend, is hypocritical.
People need to shut the hell up. This was obviously made to be supporting of new moms who are tired and worried about needing to quit. It is the same as someone who works out saying “keep going, the first month is the hardest.”
