Bottle Feeding is under attack and we all know moms who for very good reasons could not breast feed. We also know moms who bottle feed by choice.
I respect choice, as a nurse and social worker it is important that I do, because we all deserve support in our choices and decisions as to how we feed our babies. That is not to say, I would not provide a mom with information about both breast and bottle feeding but ultimately it is mom’s decision.
For those moms who need support, I recommend visiting the The Fearless Formula Feeder. Suzane Barston provides a forum for moms to discuss formula feeding in a very non-threatening, nonjudgmental way.
If you formula feed or know of any mom that does then this is a must read. It will connect you with Suzane Barston and The Fearless Formula Feeder.
I began following Suzie Barston’s blog, Fearless Formula Feeder several months ago, and have been impressed with her ability to (a) unpack the science, and (b) impact sensibility and respect for women who choose to formula feed. After reading her book and then interviewing Suzie, I know that this community will appreciate her academic rigor, and social insights. – Walker Karraa
