I must not love my kids because I FF them. Let me explain why not...
1st baby I was told that I could not because of the medicine I was on was a class D and therefore not good for baby.
2nd baby I was on different med which was safe but he was in the NIcU for a while and we never got the latching thing down and so I pumped and supplemented for 3 months till my milk went away.
3rd baby my milk never came in which was ok anyway because she would not latch. I tried everything and had all the nurses and lactation consultants help but even they said it was not going to work.
So I am an evil person who does not love my children. I didn't try hard enough. I wasn't educated enough. I should have bought other women's milk and fed it to my babies.
But you know I don't really care anymore. I used to feel guilty and hang my head in shame and scurry around the formula aisle waiting until no one was looking to go grab a canister because I was ashamed of myself.
No more. I hold my head up high buying formula because at least I am feeding my children. I love my children more than myself. How dare any one of you say otherwise.
Who is with me!?
