Wow, a lot of great snappy answers here! I'm glad to know I didn't cross the etiquette line with my responses to either Nosy Nellie.
Incidentally, both my brother and I were breastfed...as a kid I had the WORST ear, nose, and throat problems. And he had lots of weird allergies, including a skin problem that made it impossible to wear shoes. So breastfeeding is hardly a cure-all.
I agree that breastfeeding is being pushed big-time, something I actually agree with. However, some people do not seem to realize that just because it's *best* doesn't make it *possible* for everyone. It makes me especially crazy to hear upper-class women go on and on about how they just don't understand why poorer women would choose formula. Well, um, maybe because they couldn't afford a lactation consultant? They can't afford to stay home with the baby? They don't have a job that allows them to pump multiple times a day? It's like breastfeeding is this upper-class obsession now.
