Breastfeeding vs bottle feeding

There has been a lot of talk recently about the big “breastfed vs bottle fed” debate so I’ve decide to share my experience and opinion on the matter.

FEED YOUR BABY!!!!

That’s it really….from boob, from bottle, just feed them!

I’ll give you a little insight into my decision to switch from breast to bottle……while breastfeeding my daughter Tilly on week 3, bare in mind my nipples already looked like I’d gone at them with the cheese grater, I looked down to blood running from her mouth down her chin…..now hard core mothers might not be fazed by this but i Just couldn’t cope. With Poppy I’d already had 2 bouts of mastitis so knew what I was in for…I stopped and never looked back. I was given the usual disapproving chat from 2 health visitors but they never changed my mind, I wasn’t going to carry on with something that was making me miserable and affecting my baby.

Fast forward 3.5 years(Poppy) and 1.5 years(Tilly) and my girls are happy and healthy….isn’t that all we want?

Thank you for reading and feel free to share your own story or opinion ❤️
