      We have a phrase for some of the more zealous advocates of the Le Leche League……LactoNazis. Which refers to a person who would advise risking dehydration rather than giving an infant formula.

      On the other hand, if you know nothing about the differences between artificial feeding and breastfeeding, or if you DO know the differences, and *choose* to feed your baby formula instead of breast milk, your guilt comes from YOUR OWN knowledge that breastfeeding is better. Not from "lactonazis" or "militants," but from your own mind.
