Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Formula fed babies STINK!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

And that's my confession.  I honestly feel like breastmilk-fed, cloth diapered, natural babies smell so much sweeter than FF babies.  Makes me gag.  This is actually something that other BF moms have brought up to me so I know I'm not alone here.  

Cue the, 'want a cookie?', 'no one cares about your opinion', and 'judgmental much?' type comments.  It's honest, I feel kinda bad for saying it, but it's my confession.  Agree or disagree?

I don't know if FF babies stink in general, but their poop certainly does!!! It smells so much more pungent and gross than a BF baby's poop does.... *gag*


MAybe you are sensitive to whatever is coming through their pores - It only stands to reason that whatever you eat is going to come out in your sweat/body odor. Think about garlic and curry - why not formula?

Formula diapers smell horrible, but I haven't noticed the actual formula-fed baby being stinky.  I switched my babies to formula halfway to a year old when I returned to work, and I remember being amazed at the new poopy diaper smell.  I can't imagine a smell like that coming from a newborn!!

Extremely rare...

Don't agree. My son was breast fed for around 7 or so weeks and smells the same as he always has.
