Other than those people who sound like they belong to the ABA or do the whole touchy-feely attachment parenting thing or something - who has had a good experience with the Australian Breast Feeding Association? So many of my friends who had trouble with breast feeding for varied reasons didn't have a nice time with them. They were simply given the same advice over again, stuff they had already tried and were still faily at. They were made to feel very bad when they finally gave up and used formula.
I have been to one meeting and decided it wasn't for me and have never needed to call them for help but I get the impression that many of them are very one sided. But I guess that's the point.
Perhaps then we need a Bottle Feeding Association to balance things out and give support to those who either don't want to or struggle to breastfeed?
I know the theory is that anyone can breast feed but so many people I know and on here have really really tried and still couldn't do it. It seems that their only support network is places like this?
P.S. I breastfed my DD and plan to do it again so don't think I am all bottle bottle bottle, I just empathise with those who really want to and can't.
