People Are Outraged After Dad Says Wife Should Pay For Formula After Stopping Breastfeeding

People Are Outraged After Dad Says Wife Should Pay For Formula After Stopping Breastfeeding

A dad has come under fire on Twitter for saying his wife should pay for their baby's formula after stopping breastfeeding.

The post, which was originally on Reddit and was then deleted and shared to Twitter, complained that he shouldn't have to fund his baby's formula as it was his wife's "decision".

"She has been breastfeeding for 6 months since the baby was born and now wants to switch to formula. She makes plenty of milk and everything she just says she 'feels done'," the dad wrote.

"I think if she wants to stop for basically no reason then the money for formula should come out of the personal spending money because she is the one making the decision.

"She says I'm an a***hole and it should come from the family/grocery budget (which is already tight) even though I don't have a say."

Twitter users were understandably outraged by the man's opinion, with people branding him "trash" and saying they would "divorce him".

People were quick to point out that the wife should "invoice him for the hours spent nursing / pumping and take that out of his budget", and that she "should back-charge him for all of the formula expenses she saved by generating the baby's food for months with her own body. (Not to mention generating and birthing the baby!)"

Another wrote "Her body, her choice.The fact that he's even talking about it coming out of her "personal spending money" speaks volumes. He probably mansplained pregnancy and birth to her, as well", with one person even questioning the veracity of the post, writing: "I have to believe this is a fake so i don't become a vigilante and work out how to stab ppl through the computer [sic]."

We're really hoping the post is fake so we don't totally lose faith in humanity...
