I am unable to breastfed. It is not a choice to feed my babies formula, it is a matter of keeping them alive.
At first I found all this very difficult to come to terms with as everyone knows 'breast is best' and the guilty feelings of not being able to give my baby 'the best' were very powerful.
I also found that their was little support and information for mother's who could not breastfeed so I started a facebook group called Bottle Babies. This is a place where mothers can share their stories, information and support. It is in NO way a bottle feeding vs breastfeeding page as most of the women here would have loved to have been able to breastfeed, but simply couldn't.
I would like to share this group with anyone who would like to show their support, or receive some. We have plenty of breastfeeding mummies on the page too, so all are welcome.
