When this girl was tiny tiny, I was at a football game feeding her my pumped breastmilk from a bottle and some lady walked by and said, “ya know she really should be breastfed!” I smiled and said thanks for her loving advice and moved on. If she had only known how much blood sweat and tears it took me to even keep up with nursing and pumping. For her first 6-7 months I nursed for 20 min + fed her from a bottle afterwards for every feeding. I also am never able to avoid mastitis with my babies. ???? I’m sure that stranger meant well. And I think breastmilk is fantastic and ya know, so is formula!???????? Thank goodness for moms who FEED their babies however they are fed! Thank goodness for moms who TRY. I’ve thought so much about how we are moms to certain kids for a reason, for them and for us! So if you feel like no one’s rooting for you, I sure the heck am!???????? Whether you breast feed, bottle feed, believe in crying it out or not, let your kids watch tv or not, feed them fries or green smoothies…HOWEVER you mom— I believe you are theirs for a reason and God sent them to YOU. He didn’t send them to any other “perfect” mom who seems to have it all together, he sent them to you because you are the perfect mom to them. You are their mom because you have exactly what they need. You are doing so much better than you think. Keep going. Believe in your divine role for those kids and wear spit up on your shirt like it’s a badge of honor, cuz it really is an honor to be able to be a mom to these babies. What a beautiful opportunity the Lord has given to moms of every kind.
