187. I'm allergic to soy.
Guess what I was fed as a baby -- you guessed it, soy formula -- Sobee!

I also have a ton of allergies. Pollen, cat hair, dog hair, mold, bla blah. Mom wouldn't breastfeed me cuz it was the Fifties.

I breastfed my child until she basically weaned herself when she was two and a half. Hubby told a psychiatrist during our divorce that I was "breastfeeding the baby after my milk dried up" like I was some kind of pervert getting a thrill from it.

The elderly woman psychiatrist told him he was full of shit in so many words. I think what she said was "That's not possible" but then he thinks he's an expert on females.

I'm a crunchy granola earth mother when it comes to breastfeeding. I am into heavy drugs when it comes to childbirth since I had a planned C section since the kid would not come out the usual way, and both of us would have died without a C section.

It floors me when people think that bottle feeding is more convenient. It's a major hassle.
