  1. Also some babies just don’t wanna latch that’s not the moms fault. They are making sure their baby is fed through formula. I was a baby like that. Just never wanted to latch my mom tried everything

  2. i was able to breastfeed (or at least pump & feed him my milk) for the first 2 weeks. unfortunately afterwards, it went downhill.
    i wasn’t breastfeeding most of the time because my boy has a pretty strong latch, which inflamed my nipples after literally 2 feeds to the point where they bled.
    so i pumped 10+ times in 24 hours, take one time away if i breastfed.
    but then i got mastitis on BOTH breasts, it hurt so bad & the milk just wouldn’t come out. i used to produce ~70/80 ml of milk after just a few days on each breast, but then only 5-10ml would come out.
    when the mastitis went away, the situation didn’t get better. i could only get around 10ml from both breasts and i was pumping so often that my nipples, once again, got cracked.
    i was exhausted both physically and mentally, so i made the decision it would be best to switch to formula 😉

  3. It should be an informed choice, being unable to breastfeed is actually incredibly rare but so many women are let down by their healthcare providers that they think they’re unable to

  4. “We encourage breast feeding first” is actually JUDGING moms! Encourage healthy feeding without mentioning method if you truly want to encourage and support!

  5. I have a 2 month old baby and I was only able to breastfeed him for a few days… he lost a full pound in a week because I wasn’t producing enough milk 😭 I tried to get my production going but, unfortunately, it just didn’t happen for me.

  6. Im a first time mom, my babygirl is 10 days old.. I’m having a hard time feeding her. I’m breastfeeding her but idk if she’s getting enough so I’m also giving her formula … 😥 i hope Im not doing anything wrong..
