When it came to having my second child, the thing that caused me to stress the most was deciding how to feed her. So I decided to create a guide for mama’s to help them know the pros and cons from someone who has done both. Ultimately, whether you decide to formula feed, or breast feed, remember that a healthy and happy baby and mama are what’s best!
Sometimes breastfeeding doesn’t work out and that’s okay! In the end, its better that you and your baby are healthy and happy. That’s why other alternatives, like formula, are available so that you can do what is best for you and your baby.
No matter what way you choose to feed your baby, you are a good mom! I had the best of intentions to breastfeed my children, and for completely different reasons it didn’t work out for either of them. I felt so much mom guilt, but in the end formula really was the best choice for our family.
So, if you are loving breastfeeding, I am so happy for you! If you are loving formula feeding, I am so happy for you! If you are struggling to decide what is best for your family, I empathize with you, and I give you permission to do whatever is best for your family, even if that isn’t what you originally had planned. You are the best mom for your babies. You’ve got this!
