#formulafeeding

Breastfeeding / formula-feeding / mixed feeding: if you’ve found the one that works for you, high five! Lucky you! Don’t feel you need to explain or justify yourself to anyone. Hold your head up high and don’t fear being judged. Your baby is fed, it is loved, and you are doing an incredible job!💥🙌❤️ #happymummyhappybaby (📷:@mothersmeetings)

Mums that breastfeed and judge other mums for using formula really annoy me. it’s not breast is best, it’s fed is best 🙃I breastfeed in the day and use formula at night. Formula is just as good, as long as your baby is being fed and gaining weight that is all that should matter !! So judgmental mums need to rack off 😄 #breastfeeding #formulafeeding #fedisbest

I had to repost this, I have never seen this show but this scene hits home. My husband has been by my side.. assuring me, supporting me... and still to this day does the same. Also, I know the feeling of desperation and guilt. I’ve been brought to tears and felt ashamed. I truly believe that I was on the brink of PPD due to the pressures and sadness of my journey. I don’t feel that way anymore though, I’ve come to terms. My baby is healthy and thriving! ❤️To this day, I’m in public and look around wondering if someone is judging me while I pour water and formula into my baby’s bottle. We have enough stress as moms, why does whether or not your baby is breastfed have to be one of them? I still cry thinking about the first 3 months of my baby’s life 😢 #Repost @dontjudgejustfeed

The last few days Rosie has been fussier than normal. Like “scream at the top of her lungs no matter what” fussy. I was going to lose my mind. I always knew what to do with Alice, and this time I was just so clueless. I called my mom and I cried and we laughed together because I said “now we just cry together Rosie”. Obviously all around she’s a magical baby and a straight up miracle, but the crying would. Not. Stop. So yesterday we were going on day 4 of the crying party. 🎉 She had still been sleeping through the night, but would spend all waking hours devastated. So I had nursed her, burped her, given her gas drops, swaddled her, unswaddled her, bounced her around, held her still, rocked her, held some light pressure on her tummy, pumped her legs to help if she had gas, sang her songs, changed her diaper, rubbed her head with a soft bristle brush in case maybe it itched, put lotion on her, added layers just in case she was cold, drove her around in the car, literally EVERYTHING I could think of. And still 😭😫😓Finally yesterday I thought I would give her a bottle and see if after a few bottles we could help lessen any dairy in her system and maybe she would feel better. At this point I was hashtag desperate. So I made 4 ounces just to see how she would do and she DOWNED it. Guys she was a whole new baby. She was happy, awake and kicking for hours. You might have seen on my stories she was smiling!! I felt victorious 💪🏼but I also felt like a total dummy because my baby had apparently just been hungry for days? I’ve never been afraid to supplement with formula, but I hadn’t been for a few days because I thought I was making plenty! I’m going to meet with a lactation consultant and see if we can figure out what’s going on, but in the meantime I’m going to supplement with bottles because her health is way more important than my pride. What was your relationship with nursing? ❤️👎🏼🍼? Did this happen to anyone else?

One of my pumps today, 15 mins 😢 it’s been a low day. Another pump was about 1.5 oz and impinging again right now but doesn’t look to be more than an oz. I have to admit, I’ve been slacking on water really bad. I’m currently chugging some after I realized I haven’t drank any all day. 😩 so my goal is make sure I drink abut 100 oz a day (my water bottle is 40 oz). Supplements should be coming tomorrow (not sure if they’ll work, but at least to give me a small boost). Maybe I need to go back to eating oatmeal and drinking ovaltine again. (I’ve been trying to cut down on food cause I’ve gained weight so I haven’t eaten much oatmeal lately). I plan to try power pumping every other day. Your girl is still struggling but hasn’t given up. As long as my baby gets some breast milk is all that matters to me. #breastfeeding #pumpingmom #newmom #breastfeedingmama #lowmilksuppy #medela #spectra #nursingmom #fedisbest #formulafeeding #breastfeedingsupport

This is an absolute life saver!! After a couple of weeks boiling the water for Fletch’s bottles in a saucepan then waiting for it to cool, I had to give this little machine a go and I am sooooo happy I did!! In under two minutes, his bottles are the perfect temp and ready for him to drink 🙏🏼
Thank you @tommeetippeeaustralia for this little life saver ✨ Definitely a must for any parents who are formula feeding 🍼

If only this sign was commonplace.
•••
Breastfeeding Friendly signs are wonderful if you’re a breastfeeding mother. They are a kick in the teeth when you’re not. Yet another trigger towards breastfeeding grief. These signs fuel feeding division and superiority.
Who cares about the fragile mindset of the thousands of mothers suffering PND/PPD caused by their feeding journey.... WE CARE.
😔
Every mother should feel supported and empowered to feed their baby, whenever wherever, however. Breastfeeding in public needs respect, awareness and support, but this can be achieved in a more mindful way. 💕
• Breasts out, Bottles out, Tubes out • 💪
🚫No shame. No judgement. 🚫
Just mothers feeding their babies. 💕🙌

ASKING FOR A MUMMY READER: BABY WITH MILK PROTEIN SENSITIVITY.

Hi mummies, please can you advise on this? Any experience with babies with milk protein sensitivity and the most suitable milk formula for them available in Nigeria? Perhaps this is a topic to raise with Dr Uwajeh in our live video session next week! Keep the topic suggestions coming! We’ve had a few so far, I’ll be picking the most recurring ones!

I’ve got an awesome case of mastitis. 😬😳😫😭 I am choosing NOT to breastfeed this time around BECAUSE I’m super susceptible to mastitis. I’m damned if I do, damned if I don’t. 😡 I’ll be heading home tomorrow, but I wanna head home functioning, ya know?!? 💁🏼‍♀️ Help me clear this up! Any tips to help dry these blasted ta-ta’s up?!? #mastitis #breastfeeding #formulafeeding

Seja leite materno ou fórmula. Que uma mãe jamais seja julgada pela forma que alimenta seu filho. Breastfeed or formula. A mother should never be judged by the way she feeds her child. ❤️

Right on, @burtsbeesbaby !! A part of what #thefamilyvillageproject hopes to do is provide a no judgement zone. There are SO many ways to parent. Maybe you choose to breastfeed, maybe you choose to formula feed, either way- your baby is fed ✔️ being a mother goes far beyond breastfeeding, sleep training, how you discipline, these are just stops on the journey, paths we choose. They do not define us. We want to make sure parents are educated and safe with their choices and do what’s best for them and their family. There are so many avenues of parenting, we don’t want to restrict a mother from being her best self. Dads, you too! #youdoyou #nojudgementzone #judgementfreeparenting #education #parenting #nycparent #bertsbees #baby #family #sleeptraining #formulafeeding #breastfeeding #fedisbest #mother #momtobe #dadtobe #father #mama #dada #empoweringwomen #empoweringmoms #momlife

My sweet baby and the inspiration for The Sleep Solution app. Sleep was a challenge for us, starting around six months. I read EVERYTHING. And then I finally found a rhythm again at around 13 months. It was a rough few months for us, lol. So, I’m preparing myself for sleep challenges that will come with a second child, even though I’m not even pregnant 😂 It must have left a big impression on me. I hope that it will not only help me with the second child, but that it could help other mothers/fathers/caregivers too... and just create a more peaceful world for growing families. ❤️

I find myself struggling or even cringing with the #fedisbest lingo because I feel like this is surely obvious? Yes ‘fed is best’ is inclusive, yes it’s what we all should be doing (!?) and yes it sounds lovely and United. However, why is advocating #breastisbest an instant shun on #formulafeeding? Breast is best, scientifically speaking and in many ways once established it is best for both mother and baby. Statistically, mothers who breastfeed have a lower risk of breast and ovarian cancer along with a reduced risk of suffering #postnataldepression, not to mention that it’s the cheapest option! I think we should be steering away from let’s all hashtag fed is best because boldly writing #breastisbest is far too antagonistic. Instead we should be educating mothers in what to expect when breastfeeding then maybe it wouldn’t come as such a disheartening shock when it doesn’t happen effortlessly. BF definitely isn’t the easy option, it’s initially very time-consuming for an already exhausted mother, anxiety can kick in because you’ve no way of knowing how much milk the baby is getting and it can be incredibly painful- sore nips and #mastitis galore! Yet as the saying goes (hopefully!) good things come to those who wait/breastfeed-for-hours-on-end and 6 weeks down the line you’re unhooking your bra and baby’s latching/guzzling like a pro. For me, both my babies have fed quite a lot throughout the night- even 6 months in- and I struggle with this but it’s not impossible. I understand this is a massive topic and every situation is different but ultimately #breastisbest and I think more should be being done to help support mothers who would like to at least give it a try. Let’s be upfront about breastfeeding, let’s make sure that no mother feels helpless because she wasn’t given the right advice/help in the first few weeks and let’s keep developing and improving formula to best mimic breast. #breastfeeding #breastisbest #baby #debate #breastvsbottle #breastfeedingmoms #breastfeedingmums #normalizebreastfeeding

👼🏻 ANGEL FACE 👼🏻 You’d never think he could scream the house down 🙈 The last couple of days have been weird... yesterday he was awake literally all day AND night... and today he has been asleep all day... so hoping that means sleep tonight?! 🙏🏼Struggling to get into this routine malarkey, every single day is different! I’ve only just started timing his feeds... he is always having at least 150ml each feed sometimes he wants more and has 200ml! I have the hungriest baby ever! But he is weighing in at 10lb 13oz and seems happy 90% of the time so I’m just going with the flow! Does struggle with his wind though bless him, He is only a 6.5 weeks old 💙 just want him to be happy all the time!

F E E D I N G 🍼 Any other formula feeding mummies got any tips for carting around less paraphernalia when out and about? This is our set up. Flask of hot water to add a splash to the formula to dissolve and sterilise, Tootsy Boo filled with measured out powder, jam jar (!) full of sterilised cold water to top up the hot shot and then how ever many bottles I think I’ll need. It means I have a very full bag!!! This is the reason I sometimes forget/don’t have time to put on make up before leaving the house! Am I missing a trick? Is there a better way to do this without forking out on the instant cartons? GIVE ME YOUR #WEDNESDAYWISDOM!! Mb x

This was sent to me and it spoke to me so much! 💋❤️😙 'The hardest thing I ever did was my first baby.

I don't remember being more tired, lonely or overwhelmed in my life.
Yes the more you have the more your work load grows but to me, there is nothing like the wave of shock that hits you when you bring home your first baby.
Remember these things,
Nothing is permanent, don't ever feel like you have let yourself down, you have created a monster or in anyway made your own life harder by spoiling your baby. Every day is different, some days baby sleeps and you brush your teeth, some days baby doesn't and you rock in the corner staring at the wall.
Time spent enjoying yourself is not time wasted. There is nothing more important then your mental health. Do something everyday that you WANT to do. Maybe that's going for a run, maybe it's youtubing cat videos.
Some mums seem like naturals. They have blow dried hair and expensive prams. Inside they want to drown themselves in vodka, file for divorce and pull a bong too. They are just private queens so they do this on the inside. We are all struggling.
Vaginal births, breast feeding and co-sleeping are great, but so are C-sections, formula and babysitters. Your happiness is more important then any of it.
You feel a huge divide between your partner and you, you feel like he just doesn't understand. Do you know what? It's likely that he doesn't right now, but he will, he will learn to understand. The divide will shrink and you will feel connected again.
You are succeeding. Every single day that you get through, you are succeeding, with no sleep, loud screams, marital breakdowns, no post baby weight loss, you are succeeding.
You are such a fucking royal success story, what you are doing is phenomenal and overwhelmingly hard.

Don't ever forget that Queenie. 👑' #newmum #clickinmoms #postnataldepression

Little P. The eldest twin but my smallest son... I make sure feeding him every couple of hours is a priority. This means waking him for a feed when he’s sleeping to make sure he gets enough milk in to ensure weight gain. Because Pasha was so small at birth he’s a lot more sleepy and his suck reflex was slightly underdeveloped when he left hospital meaning I went through about 5 different brands of bottles to find one that he didn’t choke on or let ALL the milk dribble out the side of his mouth. Thankfully I found Munchkin Latch which has a super slow flow teat and one that is designed like a boob and nipple. 6 week check for the boys of Friday to see how they’re doing!

"The literature itself has vastly exaggerated claims, with most research statistics being debunked. Those that haven’t been disproved have acknowledged that the results are affected by genetic, social and environmental factors. It is not a simple case of “Breast milk will result in… and Formula use will result in…” but they continue to present the information in this manner. It’s manipulating science to further their desire to raise breastfeeding rates.
〰️
I understand that breast milk and breastfeeding is perfect nutrition for babies, I’m not arguing that. However, formula was invented for a reason. That reason being that ‘mother nature’ is unforgiving and unpredictable, no mother or baby is the same. Science states we are all individuals so it’s about time we approached infant feeding with this (actual) fact in mind.
〰️
How can organisations release and promote the ‘facts’ in this booklet and not consider the emotional impact and pressure it would have on expectant and new mothers? This style of communication is making blanket assumptions. They don’t need to intimidate parents to highlight that breastmilk is good, natural nutrition for babies. They also don’t need to make women feel they are solely responsible for providing their baby with food, especially when it is at the detriment to their own health. The current campaigns are completely negligent to maternal mental health and wellbeing...
〰️
Let’s hope that one day, the moral principles of the health organisations will value mothers and babies equally and will implement a new approach with mindful, inclusive options and communication. Mother & Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative perhaps?"
