Formula Feeding Moms

I have noticed that there is a lot of support for moms who breastfeed and I thought it would be nice for formula feeding moms to have support as well. Just because moms formula feed it’s not because we are lazy its either because breast feeding didn’t work out for us or it just wasn’t right for our lifestyle. It would be nice to have a community where moms can chat about different formulas they use and maybe share stories on why they don’t breastfeed. I also think it can be hard to be a formula feeding mom because we are sometimes made to feel bad for formula feeding either from friends, strangers, doctors or nurses. This isn’t a community where I want to cut down moms who can breast feed I think there is nothing wrong with that and I think it’s great that they were able to do so. I hope to meet a lot of great formula feeding moms .
