    Default I formula feed!

    just want to say that i proudly formula feed my healthy, thriving, meeting all his milestones six month old. I tried to bf but my supply was s h I t, and sorry, I value,my sanity more than I wanted to bf on demand and express around the clock while looking after a two yo and a newborn. I have nothing against breast and dont give a crap when I see mums bf in public, but no I do not believe breast is best. Long life the makers of formula!!

    Sing it sister! Switching to formula is the one decision I've made that I'm confident in. No regrets, no guilt and if I had the chance to do it over, I'd do it sooner!

    My beautiful 6 year old wouldn't be with me today if we didn't have formula she was formula fed pretty much from the start thanks to my boobs not producing any milk.

    She is top of her class in everything, is healthy, strong, and loves her mum. formula was best for her, obviously

    Switching to formula was the first time in my parenting life that I felt like I could manage. I did feel a little guilty, but mostly relieved!

    I too am proud of my healthy, happy, FF kids who never cease to amaze me!

    Good for you, that's fantastic and being happy with it is the most important thing

    I formula fed both my children due to medical issues (DS1 due to my medical issues and DS2 due to being born with a tongue too big for his mouth) and I am content with that, but ive struggled with being blamed for my DS2' s constant illnesses etc.

    I am due for #3 in 6ish weeks and I will attempt to breastfeed but I refuse to put myself through the guilt again if I have to FF again.
