As I journey through this thing called motherhood, I'm learning that not everyone's journey is the same. Everyone has different things that work for them because not only is every child different, but everyone's circumstance is different. You can't judge someone else's journey just because it isn't in tune with how you would parent.
I breastfed both of my children. I did it for financial reasons, but there were so many other benefits. At different times, I did try to give my daughter formula. But she wouldn't take it. She had issues with her latch, I had issues with supply, and she had colic. With the endless hours of crying because of baby's discomfort, I was willing to try anything.
