https://t.co/15xetgg1psThe tweet, which trended on Friday, was criticized almost immediately, as many women said they tried breastfeeding but were unable for a multitude of legitimate reasons. "Bette, respectfully, this is a very bad take.
I had twins. I didn't produce enough milk for both. Without formula, I would have had to have chosen which one got to eat. To say nothing of kids that get separated from the birth mothers very young," one woman replied. "I love you Bette, but this is not okay," another said. "I fought to breastfeed my son, he kept losing weight, despite my best efforts, including lactation experts.
It was emotional and I felt like a failure and at 3 months switched to formula, because of the stress it put on me and my son."Twitter users called Bette's comments "nasty," "stupid" and "uninformed." A few people even wondered if Bette's account had been hacked.In the wake of the backlash, which came from all sides, the singer attempted to somewhat clarify her comments.
People are piling on because of former tweet. No shame if you can't breastfeed, but if you can & are somehow convinced that your own milk isn't as good as a "scientifically researched product", that's something else again.Read more on wonderwall.com
