I can understand what both of u are trying to say.
I think what Tia is trying to point out, is that babies who are bottle fed still bond naturally with the mother. That breast feeding, although is possibly best in many ways for mother/baby, is not essential to bonding or development.
But I can see ur point also anjelgirl. The closeness between a mother and baby during nursing, is something that cannot be replicated....I'd like to reprhase that part.... May not be so easily replicated.
This is a contraversal issue, and what one mother feels is right may not be what another agrees with. It's an individual opinion and choice. No one is right or wrong.
