Before I get going with this, I want to reiterate that I am not an expert, specialist, lactation guru, professional, or anything other than a mother that tried breastfeeding and failed.
Breastfeeding is great for babies, no doubt, but I feel like women are pressured and made to feel guilty if they either choose not to breastfeed, or can’t.
I always thought I would be that mother that breastfed my baby for a year or so. Formula stinks, it’s expensive, and it’s not natural. Breast milk doesn’t make baby’s spit ups and poops stink, it’s free, and it’s totally natural! Why wouldn’t I want to breastfeed my baby?
Of course, if things had gone according to plan for me, this blog wouldn’t exist, now would it?
