Does switching to formula make me a bad mom?

Does it make me a bad mom to want to switch to formula? I’m having a really hard time trying to keep up with my daughter’s appetite, and if I forget to pump, then I feel like I’m running way too low on milk.

I formula fed my first born :woman_shrugging:t2: so I’m gonna go with No.

Ofcourse not! Being fed is what’s best for her💕

Fed is best my dear! Don’t ever let yourself believe that you are a bad mom because of this!

No do what you need to

no ! breast feeding is super hard . no shame momma , don’t listen to others . as long as she is getting food .

Nope! You feed that baby whatever breast milk you can and formula the rest of the way. The fact that you are concerned proved you’re a good mama

Absolutly not hun, u need to do whats right for your bubby :heart::heart::heart::heart: never feel like a bad mum for trying :smiling_face_with_three_hearts::smiling_face_with_three_hearts::smiling_face_with_three_hearts::smiling_face_with_three_hearts::smiling_face_with_three_hearts::smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

No! But just for clarification, pumping isn’t a good way of determining how good your milk supply is. If your baby is wetting at least six diapers per day then they are well fed.

No not at all!!! Fed is best not breast is best girl

As long as your baby is fed :blush: I always formula fed. I was in the military so formula was easy for myself. Just be prepared you may have to try a couple formulas before you find one that works for your little one :heart: Good luck!

FED is best. Whether it’s formula or breast. It’s ok to do whatever you need to do to be the best version of YOU.

Not at all. As long as you’re baby is fed, you’re doing what you need to do. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re a bad mom for that.

No it doesn’t make u a bad mom

Not at all. I felt that way with my son, kept breastfeeding and it seems like i caught up to him, especially after he started on solids, but as long as you’re feeing your LO you’re doing a good job. Why not breastfeed and just supplement with formula?

Our generation has become so judgemental with how we raise our babies. Girl, don’t you worry. Fed is best. Formula babies are just as healthy.

Absolutely not! You need to take care of yourself so you can take care of her. If breastfeeding isn’t working for you then formula is what’s best for both of you.
Don’t feel bad for taking care of you and your baby :heart:
