Judge Orders Formula for Breastfeeding Baby in Custody Battle

I breastfed both of my babies, and that decision was an easy one for me. While I feel breast is best, I also feel that fed is best. I believe every woman has the choice to feed their babies in a way that suits their needs best. For some women, breastfeeding is their best option while for other moms, formula works best.

Both of these options are valid choices. But when that choice is taken away from you, it can be quite upsetting.

Amber Brown and her ex Corey Donta Lewis separated a little while after their baby boy was born. During their custody hearing, the two were at odds about something very particular: how they wanted to feed their now six-month old child.

Brown’s plan was to follow World Health Organization guidelines recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months. However Lewis claimed that he wanted the child to drink formula during his overnight visitations.
