I used to come on YA to try and make myself feel better in the wrong way.
I created a new account to try and start over (not in voliation of guidelines because the 2nd account is not to solicite points).
I wanted to see if other women struggeled with criticism and other challenges with breastfeeding and I was torn apart by other users.
One user even went as far as to say I could be to blame if another mother were to harm her child!
Perhaps I was looking for a pat on the back and support for struggling and still managing to breastfeed. Perhaps I am suffering from depression.
Why do formula feeding mothers act this way toward others?

Also, I did answer a few questions such as "what is the best formula for reflux" with "breastmilk" because that is my opinion.
