what are your opinions on mothers who do not breastfeed their children?

Bambamber Thu 21-Feb-19 13:30:52

I don't really have an opinion to be honest. How others choose to feed their baby is not really any of my buisness. Long as they're fed, that s the main thing

Why is it anyone's business? Some women can't breastfeed, despite trying as hard as they can. Some don't breastfeed through choice. As long as the baby is well fed, healthy and happy, it doesn't really matter how they get their milk and no-one's place to judge.

People can feed their baby however they choose to.

Lets not have this disscution again
Scientifically breastfeeding is of more nutritional value but if baby is fed and mums mental health is good then either way is what is best for them end of disscution.

What is your ABU or did you mean to post in Chat/feeding topics ?

dementedpixie Thu 21-Feb-19 13:49:21

I don't really care tbh. None of my business

Unfortunately, I do have to have this discussion as I am currently a uni student gathering the public opinion's on the Breast-feeding vs Bottle-feeding debate. Thank you to those who have provided me with their opinion's and thank you in advance to those who are yet to provide me with theirs.

dementedpixie Thu 21-Feb-19 13:51:01

Maybe you should have stated that in the first place

MammaSchwifty Thu 21-Feb-19 13:52:15

No opinion on the matter.

charlotteg101 Thu 21-Feb-19 13:52:31

If I am honest, I am new new to this site so I'm not 100% sure where to post things. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Couldn't give a flying fuck how others feed their children.

Mumshappy Thu 21-Feb-19 13:53:26

My opinion is each to their own decision. However i think formula fed babies seem to less whingy and sleep better. Ive done both my first dd was initially breast fed. Second dd and ds formula fed only. I would never breast feed again after my experience.

I don't have any opinion, should I 🤷🏻‍♀️

ChorleyFMcominginyourears Thu 21-Feb-19 13:54:24

I am of no opinion either, as long as the baby is fed and happy and the mother is happy it's none of my business.

Isn’t it part of the ethics of doing university research that you are meant to disclose you are using the data for research so the participants are aware and can adequately consent?

hoge Thu 21-Feb-19 13:55:36

It's a parenting site, not a questionnaire.

Bfing. Best weight loss method ever. For me.
I think every one should try it but I can see why some people don't want to 🤷‍♂️

Celebelly Thu 21-Feb-19 13:57:55

I have no opinion. I'm 11 days post-partum with a baby who has so far been unable to latch on due to jaw issues and a tongue tie so I've been pumping every two hours to cup feed her. It's bloody hard work and I can well understand why people would switch to formula because it's gruelling and I'm fortunate enough to have a very supportive partner. My nipples and breasts are incredibly painful - I have a blister on one from when we managed to get her latched on in a fashion, but because she can't latch properly it's a very shallow one and hurts like hell.

So breastfeeding is great if it all works out like it's meant to. But when it doesn't it's bloody hard work and exhausting, especially when you're recovering from a traumatic birth.

Good. Here is my opinion: the whole debate is awful. People shouldn't be forcing others to do as they want. Adults can perfectly choose for themselves.

Purpletigers Thu 21-Feb-19 14:02:10

I think it’s laziness/ selfish to not even try .

blueskiesovertheforest Thu 21-Feb-19 14:02:27

charlotteg101 your information gathering lacks academic rigor! What degree do you think it will help with?

DoYouLikeHueyLewisandTheNews Thu 21-Feb-19 14:02:31

Surely you gathering opinion on the 'debate' is just encouraging the 'debate', since your first post doesn't ask for what people think of the debate at all, just opinions of non-breastfeeding mums?
