We (ok many of us) get very offended seeing bottles/formula in entertainment/commercials/kids programming. Are mainstream or FFer's offended by seeing/hearing about/insinuating about bfing in the same circumstances?
If you're asking whether I get upset/offended when I see a woman on tv,in public, etc breastfeeding then answer is no, of course not! I too agree that its a beautiful and wonderful thing and that its the BEST THING FOR THE BABY.
But being someone who FF their baby because I was on strong medications that injure or kill my son, I had no other choice. What annoys me more than anything though is that women who BF expect and SHOULD have the right to nurse in public without any dirty looks, comments etc. So shouldn't women who FF be granted the same courtsey?
I've seen quite a number of times the snarky comments made to women who FF in public. But somehow its okay because they FF, but if it was a woman who was NIP, then it would be a horrible travesty.
