Lesley Murphy believes that it is a mom’s personal choice (and no one, I repeat no one else’s) when it comes to how they feed their babies.
Murphy, 33, shared a question to her Instagram Story last Thursday i.e. “Why aren’t you breastfeeding?” with a video of a formula maker that she was using for her 2-week-old daughter, Nora Blanche.
“Lots of these so wanted to address! I had a double mastectomy 4 years ago and am not able to breastfeed,” Murphy responds.
She concludes the caption, writing: “Even if I was, we should all support everyone’s unique feeding journey.”
Murphy and fiancé, Alex Kavanagh, welcomed their first child, baby Nora on Feb. 12.
Murphy announced her daughter’s birth on her Instagram Story paired with a brief statement.
“Baby girl Kavanagh is here! She is healthy and beautiful, and we are filled with pure wonder and awe to be in her presence ????,” Murphy wrote.
“Thank you so much for the love and prayers!!! Mom and Dad are doing amazing, just in need of some rest 🙂 Can’t wait to update you soon ????❤️”
In a Valentine’s Day post, Murphy revealed her little girl’s name as well as weight.
“I find her so perfect that sometimes words fail me and I’m left in tears instead … like right now,” Murphy wrote.
“Pure love is being home with this little ball of joy on a snowy Valentine’s Day as a family of 3!”
