Breastfeeding. But at what cost?
It is pushed on new mothers before, during, and after pregnancy. But what if breastfeeding isn’t an option for you? What if it’s too painful or having a severe effect on your mental health? Or you just don’t want to.
Despite popular belief, it’s okay not to breastfeed.
Talking with Mallory Whitmore of The Formula Mom, we’re here to move that stigma to the sidelines and give mom’s the confidence and support in their decision to formula feed their little ones. This episode is all about self-advocating and helping those mothers struggling with their decision to find some peace of mind.
