I feel like that article is only about breastfeeding really. The author is just using a carseat in place of breastfeeding. Comments such as not wanting their 3 year old to climb up into the seat and not wanting everyone to know that they have a child, or the privacy issue. It took me twice to read it that way, the first time I read it, I was like what a weirdo
Those are some of the most stupid excuses I've ever heard. But then after reading it with bf in mind I realized they are talking about those who choose to bottle feed. I also agree with Amanda and I feel though some mothers do choose to bottlefeed strictly from their own selfishness it still is their decision. My personal goal as a bf mom would be to educate moms as well as I can and encourage breastfeeding. However in the end it is still their choice and we should respect that even if we don't agree. There are many women who simply cannot breastfeed for medical reasons and they wish they could, and some babies who are happier on formula. Breastfeeding is great and its "usually" the best thing for baby but not always. I do feel though that the article does strictly point at those that choose to bottlefeed out of convience, style, and selfishness. But not everyone might take it that way, and I feel it might make someone feel bad.

This thread actually had me up at night. It was meant to be simple satire and I didn't want to offend. In the interest of keeping the peace I'm going to edit my original post.
