Guilt-Free Bottle Feeding is the myth-busting book about formula, breast milk and what's best for both of you. 'Breast is best' - or is it? What if you can't breastfeed? Have you failed as a mother? There is no subject more controversial for new parents than the breastfeeding versus bottle-feeding. Everyone has an opinion, and most will readily share it. Breastfeeding is fantastic but we need to be realistic: many new mums struggle to breastfeed leading to a feeling of failure. But if they move to a bottle, they can feel incredibly guilty and many feel judged by those around them. They can't win. Guilt-Free Bottle Feeding shows mums that there is absolutely no shame in bottle-feeding - and bottle-fed babies can be just as healthy, happy, smart and bonded with their mothers as breastfed babies. With Dr Sasha Howard, author Madeleine Morris taks a look at the evidence surrounding society's ideas on breast and bottle feeding, and sheds new light on our assumptions. They show mums the best ways to bottle-feed to encourage bonding, and give them the strength and information to feel confident with their feeding choices.
Let's be clear: this is not an anti-breastfeeding guide - breastfeeding is a wonderful thing. What Guilt-Free Bottle Feeding gives you is all the facts about feeding your baby - the practicalities and realities - and then lets you decide what is best for you and your family so you can give your baby the best start in life.
