I am at a loss to understand why I see the word 'guilt' so much when mums are referring to themselves either having to or choosing to FF their bubs.
'Guilt?' Really? I attempted to BF my first DD. Massive failure. Anyhow I ended up on formula and voila! Happy mummy, happy baby. Did I feel guilt? No. I did not. What is to feel guilty about? My bub was healthy, well fed and happy.
With my DS and DD2, straight onto formula they went, from the first feed. And I didn't feel guilty about that either! I now have 3 well adjusted, healthy, normal kids.
Maybe someone could explain the 'guilt' factor to me regarding FFing, because I honestly have never experienced it. Is it more to do with society's view of FFing than personal choice? I'd love to hear your experiences on this
