The View just ended here, I turned on to catch noon news. And I swear that Joy just happily announced that Elisabeth's baby is on formula ?!?!<br>
WTF~did she cave to BW's position? Is Starr buying her off so she has the biggest boobs?<br>
Someone tell me what I thought I heard..... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

There's a big ol' thread about it in the TV forum. It's pretty disgusting that they find switching to formula to be something to celebrate, as though they just won a major battle. So sad.

How sad for her baby. How sad that with so much money she didn't find the help that could have saved her BF relationship. Her boobs look great and her baby is stuck with a piece of plastic and formula. Welcome to motherhood...

Yep...<br><br>
I think it is so sad the media packs the minds of a billion stay at home moms would say crap like that- makes you wonder where the kick backs are from. I heard Barbra say the other day something about feeding the baby a bottle and tried to kid myself into thinking it was BM. But really I think Elizabeth is pertty much a waste of a good womb and boobs :LOL<br><br>
I feel so sad for that baby- it is going to be so un attached it just makes me sick. Welcome to where the image and the job means more than the kid <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I just watched this on my Tivo. Elisabeth did say that Grace only gets a bottle of formula at night. So it sounds like she hasn't totally weaned her.<br><br>
But still-- way to sabotage her supply. Next thing you now she'll start talking about how bfing "didn't work"for her or that she "couldn't make enough milk".

What about sending "The View" a ton of letters to SUPPORT E. on continued nursing? Facts about the harmful effects of formula and such.<br><br>
Anyone?? Please! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

My FIL told me that babies cannot live by breastmilk alone, but must be supplemented with formula. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">:

I emailed E and Star after that last show. How dissapointing. I don't watch it because I am at work but I wish that E would stand up for herself! Nothing like being a new mom to make you question everything you have always beleived in.

I hope you are joking! If babies 'had' to have formula, we would have died out millions of years ago! That's about as smart as saying 'people NEED Fruity Pebbles' or "people can't breathe clean air forever, we need cigarrettes".<br><br>
DUH :LOL<br><br>
Seriously though, did he really say that? Coming from an older man I am not suprised. At one time people used to think cigarrettes were good for us too, HA.

I don't know how to make these as links but there is a thread in television with the email and snail mail addresses of the show. Also in find your tribe/Ny,Nj,PA there is a nurse-in movement. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

It's regarding the increase in DEATH due to formula feeding.
