Don't Judge the Bottles

Rachel over at Grasping for Objectivity recently made a notable comment on my Don't Judge the Nursing post about how the counterpart of judging the bottle feeding also needs to stop.

And she's very, very right.

People should not be judged for feeding their children in a reasonable and nurturing manner.

How parents care for their children is a personal decision to be made within the family, and something as simple as feeding a baby shouldn't be under constant scrutiny by society.

But it is.

And that is very, very sad.

So my question to you is this: Can we personally stop the judging?

It's not an easy thing, to stop looking at other people's children and thinking how you would do things differently.

But it just might be something worth doing for everyone's sake.
