Breastfeeding_Rory

The Breast Is Best Argument   One of the blogs I like to follow sadly put down an informational research based post on breastfeeding.

11217964_954195624645067_7465238518773446084_n

Breastfeeding has never come easy for me, not for the first baby and not for the 7th. Like many women these days I face some common breastfeeding challenges, one being an unsupportive society and growing up around women who didn’t breastfeed so there is a great lack of support for it in the community.

1391316_428932757297701_1966057430_n

  I didn’t know I could breastfeed and formula feed successfully! Rory was born 5 weeks early and for a number of important reasons we had to supplement. She didn’t have a suckle and took her meals both formula and pumped milk by syringe. Finally she took a bottle and after what felt like forever […]

A sad second in Breastfeeding History

1506610_574752932594394_1405691061_n

    Hopefully Catherine Sepeda over comes being an uneducated racist. Babies have the right to eat where ever they are, there is no shame in it. If breastfeeding is sexual then a bottle is a dildo (Sorry for the vulgarity but it makes a clear point I think!) and seeing we know that isn’t […]

It isn’t a pretty topic but I think we need to be honest about it. It is time we face the facts and start being clear about what we are doing to our babies when we give them formula and not breast milk. Formula is dumbing them down. Why isn’t anyone talking about this? Yet […]
