You are so right! Kudos to your Mom!

My mother bottle fed us (my sister and I, both born in the 60's) because "that's what Jackie Kennedy did" (I swear to you this is what she told me) even though she was an RN and probably knew at least SOME of the benefits. Spparently breastfeeding was considered to be the low-brow/poor/trashy choice at that time. *eyerolls*

I am a HUGE breastfeeding advocate! It's biospecific food. But I do understand that it is difficult initially and isn't "for" everyone (but I really encourage everyone to try and to NOT GIVE UP too early). Anyway, I breast fed my two for a total of...four years.

I think it definitely was - and I share you in the eyeroll. Now the more educated and affluent women are the ones more likely to breastfeed, but it was the reverse then. So yes, kudos to my well-educated parents for bucking the trend.
