This is a real-life situation:

Woman gives birth to a baby in a hospital after 5 days of nonstop labor with no sleep. The hospital refuses to provide formula. Woman desperately wants a formula bottle because she wants to sleep, and she is also afraid of bonding with the baby. The hospital forces her to choose between breastfeeding or starving the baby. Woman breastfeeds but doesn't enjoy it at all. Once released from the hospital, she formula feeds.

Was it selfish of the woman? What are your general thoughts on this situation?
