This breast feeding discussion is great. Off with the gloves! I have culled
the past two weeks and selected some of my favorite hyperbolic rhetoric,
complete with mouth-frothing majuscular emphasis:
"...the more fanatic .. moms "
"To some moms, breastfeeding is more important than a healthy baby."
"PROVE IT! I think we'd all like to see documentation"
"I'm appalled you would make such a statement"
"Another pathetic statement which demonstrates your complete lack of
"You've obviously never breastfed"
"...now I am confused..."
"Entire generations of third world children are dying and this attitude does
not help the issue!" (My personal favorite)
"you try to say something I didn't say."
"Well, actually, since IBCLCs probably know more about safe formula feeding
than most other members of the health care team"
"how to feed formula safely since it is a DEAD substance ..."
"What makes you think that I'd be an agent for Nestlé?
"possible hidden agendas"
"THAT is probably the single most nonsensical statement... "
AND OF COURSE -----> "be reasonable"
