It’s the year 2017 and we are living smack in the middle of the age of technology, the Internet and unlimited information. Yet, we’re all still fighting, arguing and debating over the same old thing year after year: and that’s if you should breastfeed or formula feed your baby. Of course, there are pros and cons to both sides of the debate.
Plus, it goes without saying that what works for one mom might not work for another mom. That’s why we have options. And we are here to present to you just a few reasons why you shouldn’t listen to the haters and feed your baby formula, especially if it works for you.
Here are 10 reasons why moms think you should formula feed!
1. You Work Full-Time
As much as we would love to breastfeed our kids around the clock and bring a breast pump to work to pump as we please, life doesn’t always work the way we want it to. If you are limited in options, don’t feel guilty about formula feeding your child.
2. Not All Boobs Are Created Equal
Let’s face it: not all boobs are creating equal. And not all are meant to breastfeed either. And that’s OK. Some moms insist that the sole purpose of their breasts is to be used as milk machines. Others simply just want them to still look good in a sports bra. You choose. They are your boobs and we’re not here to pass judgment about them.
3. Nipple Pain
A lot of moms don’t want to talk about it, but nipple pain is real! And it damn it hurts, especially when those baby teeth start coming it. With formula feeding, you don’t have to worry about the pain that comes with a baby trying to suck the life out of you.
