I feel silly asking, but I have no idea how to formula feed. Mainly, can you overfeed a baby with a bottle? How do I know when to switch nipple flow speed?
Also I just wanted to hear other mom's thoughts on formula shaming. I breastfed my first 2 children, and it was extremely difficult. I kept it up and while it did get easier, I always had pain. I felt pressure from all fronts to continue.
After my second baby I had a breast reduction and my surgeon told me my chance of breastfeeding again was almost nil due to type of surgery and tissue removal. Fast forward and 6 years later I am pregnant with our surprise baby.
To be honest I am relieved I have an "out" to breastfeeding. But I am anxious about delivering and the care after. I saw myself the first 2 times how hard the staff push bfing. My last roomate formula fed from birth and the doctor (who happens to work for my clinic) gave the poor mom a rough time. Same with the nurses
Has anyone else experienced this? How do I respond to formula shamers??
