I formula fed all of my children. It was tough for me because I physically wasn’t able to breastfeed. I’ll never forget the judgment I felt from people who didn’t know my story, who didn’t know my history, who didn’t know my struggles. It literally devastated me that I wasn’t able to produce enough milk to feed my kids, my babies. I tried for 2 weeks with my William, but he was losing weight and my doctor told me I needed to turn to formula to sustain him.
It was a defining moment in motherhood for me because I just wanted the best for my baby.
That’s all we all want.
When I saw this video that Similac put out last week (thanks to my friend Andrea), I have to be honest with you – a range of emotions came over me. I laughed. I gasped. I nodded in agreement. And then I cried.
There’s something going down on the playground. Don’t they know that everyone has their own way of parenting? But when it comes down to it, we’re all on the same side. Help us put an end to the judgment by sharing this video with every parent you know. Join the conversation on http://www.facebook.com/Similac #SisterhoodUnite
I loved it.
Tell me what you think.
