holier than thou

i'm so sick of hearing parents act holier than thou. like they know all the answers and that their style is right for all children.
this morning on tv they were discussing bf. NOT TRYING TO START A DEBATE OR INSULT ANYONE.
i'm all for bf'ing, if that is your choice. i agree it's the healthiest thing for babies. but not all women can do it. and not all women want to. and that doesn't mean we are doing harm to our children.
i tried to bf. with twins...are you kidding me? i didn't make enough milk for both. i pumped for about a month and supplemented with formula. never made enough milk for both, so i gave up and went on formula 100%. it was a PITA to have to pump.
now both of my girls are very healthy. never had an ear infection. never been on antibiotics.
so don't tell me that i did the wrong thing. get off your high horse and realize that bf is not the ONLY answer.
p1ssed me off for the whole morning.
i hate people preaching to me about what i should do. go tend to your own life.
