I applaud moms who breastfeed I really do, but for me I never had that desire. Maybe it’s because I have miserable pregnancies so by the time they come I am just spent. Whatever the reason it wasn’t something I did for either of my girls and I’m okay with that.
There are so many amazing resources for new moms but my favorite one for feeding is from Happy Family. Infant feeding choices seem to be scrutinized no matter what you decide to do, but I love that at Happy Family it’s not like that. They provide resources, tips, and supplies for any feeding journey!
The journey doesn’t end at breast -vs- formula and they have you covered.
I wish I would tell you that once you decide breast or formula that life gets easier but that’s not real life. With Noelle we tried 1 formula and she was on it for a year. Lennon Jane…well she tried about 4 different ones before we found one that worked.
Why can’t all our kids just be wired the same?
I feel you, I’ve asked this question many times. Why can’t it just be easy? Well then it wouldn’t be much fun now would it? My girls are polar opposites in everyday from their feeding to their personalities. It’s a guessing game but platforms like Happy Baby that not only provide top notch products but also advice and tips…well it makes the guessing a tad easier.
Your feeding journey is yours, so embrace it!
Don’t let guilt, sadness, or anger stop you from enjoying every single second for that sweet baby. Your feeding journey is not going to look like mine, your friends, the mom on IG…it is yours and yours alone. Turn to resources like Happy Family for support. You got this mama!
