Do I have to even begin to tell you how defensive I feel when I have to explain to people why I'm not breastfeeding? As in, I had all the best intentions in the world, but you know, when you eliminate six of the Big Eight allergens from your diet for three weeks, and your child is spitting up and passing blood within 36 hours of resuming breastfeeding...clearly BFing is not going to work for that child. If it had, the restricted diet sucked, but I would have done it.

Dammit. There I go again. I think I'm okay with having to formula feed, but as soon as someone else gets involved in the conversation, I get all apologetic and crap. I even feel GUILTY because I realized after the fact that my freakin' prenatal may have had one of the things I was trying to eliminate in it. I should not have to defend the medical necessity of my son eating formula -- especially when he's clearly thriving on it, meeting or exceeding all his developemental milestones, and overall the happiest baby I've ever met.
