    I dislike Informed Parenting.

    The articles on breastfeeding do nothing but add to the extreme guilt felt by mothers like me who failed, and the tone of her all of the articles are, “If only women did…,” and “If women would…” and so forth.

    Ultimately, the points are valid and worth considering, but I go to more compassionate and less judgmental and *fap*fap*fap* sites for that discourse.
