First circumcision, now breast feeding. Hoo-eee! This Momversation gig has been interesting, because it’s all stuff I generally wouldn’t think to discuss online. I just added a comment over there about how I don’t really know anyone who chose to just go straight to the bottle. If you did or plan to, I’m interested to hear your reasoning.
In other news, that screencap of Rebecca is golden.
Update: Two commenters at the Momversation site made great points:
1. Ces lasalle pointed out that you can make formula, which blew my mind. I’d never heard of that before. She says:
“I pumped for six weeks and supplemented with a homemade formula, a concoction my mother helped me make based on a book by Adele Davis. It had goat’s milk, yeast, plain yogurt, lecithin, cod liver oil and a high quality infant vitamin in it. He loved it,thrived on it and still drinks it 5.5 years later instead of regular milk.”
2. Patty has the perfect response to people who ask why you’re not breastfeeding:
“When people ask (and boy howdy they did!) why I wasn’t nursing I just said “medical reasons” and let them wonder.”
