She may be nice but her comment was stupid. There is no attempt to ban formula feeding. The science does say breastfeeding is superior to bottle-feeding and should be encouraged at all times. No one is stigmatizing nursing mothers if they have to formula feed.

Feelings aside, any attempt to denigrate breastfeeding may cause some to make the wrong decision. This is again an attempt to marginalize science when it goes across a personal views.

And promoting breastfeeding may cause some to make the wrong decision. The risk of people following advice and having it go badly for them is always there. Given the limitations of human beings, its not a solvable problem.
