Yes, this was said to me by one of our friends, half-joking, half-serious. His reasoning behind this? Breastfeeding is pushed so that those that use goverment assistance aren't spending more tax dollars on formula. I let him know that I planned on breastfeeding until at least a year. Oh, and then he found out we cloth diaper as well. Apparently, this information together makes one ask, "What are you, hippies now?"
"Free yourself" & "Support the economy and buy formula," could also be heard that day.
I don't make this shit up, people. Sometimes, I wish I did.
