Rule number one: just because you post on a forum doesnt mean you get to make the rules about how other people post.
Rule number two: Just because someone has a different opinion than you doesnt mean they are picking a fight or being inflammatory. (but now I am, because Im tired of you bossing people around.)
Thank god MDC has you to police other peoples threads for them and let everyone know what the rules are! You should be getting paid for the job you're doing.
Labeling me judgmental because of my differing opinion of the risk/benefits of EP is the height of hypocrisy.
I never judged anyone, I only ever said that I thought EPing ran the risk of underfeeding your baby, as well as numerous other potential problems.
Just because I don't start every post "IMO" like you, doesn't mean that it isn't implied.
IMO... Exclusively pumping and bottle feeding a baby runs the risk of underfeeding the baby. And I don't think it should be promoted as a breastfeeding alternative because of that and the fact that should the mother tire of pumping, going back to breastfeeding could be very difficult or impossible and she may be more inclined to give up. Which will hurt her and the baby.
is that good enough for you? not sure what kind of response you wanted? just let me know so I can do exactly what you want.
