Sorry Michelle,

Nice of you to leave a crytic remark on my blog. Comment number 20 on BloggingBaby was fairly difficult to find. Next time you might just send me your remark, rather than this "sue, I have left a comment for you on blogging baby under comments....I believe that it is #20. Maybe mention which article.

Here's Michelle's comment on my blog "You really offended me with what you said and I think that you really need to educate yourself a little more before you go making such comments!!!! It makes me upset that you seem to think that you are better just because you breastfeed....that does not make you a better mom or a better person. To educate you I have listed some reasons on blogging baby on why babies might need formula! Thank you for your time.

Dearest Michelle,

I have done a considerable amount of reading about how the medical industry means well, but is producing bad outcomes.

Sorry you feel that your baby needs formula. Did your doctor use a breastfed baby weight chart, or just the standard formula fed baby chart. Most breastfed infants start falling of the FF chart. The formula industry has done a lot of research to make babies grow fast. Just like fertilizing your lawn makes it grow fast, but leaves it suseptible to disease, formula makes sick babies for the drugs companies to line their pockets.

Did you even know there were two weight charts, or hadn't you read enough?

Seems like you just wanted to vent your frustrations. Feel free to vent at me any time.

I birthed my baby without doctors or a hospital because research proves it is safer.

(Sorry everyone else, but she didn't leave anyway to reply but here)

yes sue my baby is 9 months old and weighs 15 lbs and he is in the 85th % isle for height and the 97th % isle for his head, yes I did know there are 2 weight charts...thank you for assuming that I am a compleate idiot. Why can't you just appoligize for acting like if you feed your baby formula you are a bad person. I love my baby but on breastmilk he just wasnt thriving....so sorry that I am not a perfect mom, and my baby has never been a small baby by the way.... when he was born he weighed 7lb 11oz.
