Whether your baby is breastfed, bottle fed, or any combination thereof, that baby has to eat. Breastmilk is best, but there are situations where that isn’t always possible. Having options to choose from helps ensure that your infant gets the best nutrition available no matter what the circumstances.
Be proud of yourself for providing good nutrition to your child. Never feel ashamed, guilty, or in any way bad about the method you choose or have to use to feed your child. It is perfectly natural to breastfeed. Do not feel shame for doing so. It is perfectly understandable if you have to use formula. Do not feel shame for doing so. If you’re feeding your baby a healthy diet with the proper nutrition, you don’t have any reason to feel anything but good about that.
