Pro-Breast Does Not Necessarily Mean Anti-Formula – Do What’S Best For You And Your Baby!

Just gonna leave this here! 👏🏻👏🏻⁣

Breastfeeding is AMAZING and I was lucky enough to be able to breastfeed both my son and daughter for the first 18 months. ⁣

With that said, I also supplemented their feed with formula. Both my children were supplemented with formula throughout their first years of life together with breastfeeding.

I think it’s really important for this to be said. Even though we are super keen here @newmomsforum to educate others about breastfeeding, we are in no way shape or form ANTI-formula!

Both have their place. Some moms will 100% breastfeed, some will 100% formula feed. Others (like I did) might do a combination of the two.

So do what’s best for you and your baby.  You’ll see no judgement here. 💕

  1. I gave birth 5 weeks ago. I wish I had found your IG before then. I had no idea how hard it would be to breastfeed. I was willing to try, but also willing to give him formula if it didn’t work out. But my lactation consultant was adamant about NO formula, stating that’s how obesity starts (from overfeeding and it sitting in their stomachs longer) and nipple confusion.
    I knew my milk wasn’t coming in, but trusted her anyway because she’s the professional. I should’ve listened to my instinct because my son ended up in the NICU at 6 days old from dehydration, he lost almost 2lb and jaundice. I was basically starving my kid.
    They say it’s common, however the way it happened with us could’ve easily been prevented if my original lactation consultant hadn’t pushed so hard and made me feel guilty for wanting to supplement. Luckily we’re home and healthy now and this will never happen again!

    I’m recommending all new moms to your page!

  2. ❤️😍😍❤️I’ve thought of adding formula I am 7 months in and running low at end of night my instincts tell me he needs more so i unfreeze a milk now I’m going to pumping when he’s asleep at 11/12 and then I give that to him every night at his 8/9 bedtime… I’ve thought about just stop pumping and maybe one formula bottle a night

  3. This is so important ! If someone would have just said “it’s okay to breastfeed and supplement” when my son was born- It would have been life changing.

  4. Pro-breast does not also mean squartingboobpicsalloverinternetwithbabies……

  5. This is seriously great I do not see this message being spread! And it’s so true!!! I needed to see this so I could stop feeling guilty about breastfeeding with some added formula when needed.

  6. Idk how so many people are still okay to formula, most are literally corn syrup based

  7. Yes! I supplemented with my first, and just didn’t need to with my second 🤷🏽‍♀️ I will always try to help mamas breastfeed, but I’m not against formula.. whatever works!

  8. Love this i formula fed my oldest and am currently nursing my 17 month old
