Am I NOT mom enough because my kids would not latch, I was lazy about it, and that with my 2nd kid I didnt have the time to put into the whole breastfeeding thing?? Am I to be considered a bad mom because I chose to put my babies on formula instead of giving them my milk?? All my aunts breast fed (at least I think so), my friends have, my co workers, and it is a great thing for your child but please so not put us down that cannot produce, cannot pump, cannot get a child after weeks and weeks of not sleeping or eating decides to give our child formula.
Baby formula actually has a long history.
The origins of the Nestlé Company go all the way back to 1867, when Henri Nestlé created a nutritious product for infants that could be used by mothers who were unable to breast-feed. Merchant, chemist and inventor Henri Nestlé, established in Vevey, Switzerland, makes a breakthrough when his new formula saves the life of a premature infant.
So yes even though I couldn't breastfeed for long, my girls are healthy and they are happy and I am mom enough. Shoot me but I think as long as they have what they need to grow healthy it doesnt matter one way or another.
