Guilt-free Bottle Feeding : Why your formula-fed baby can be happy, healthy and smart. Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

You are not a bad mother if you can't breastfeed. For decades mums have been told that 'breast is best', that breastfeeding is the single-most important thing we can do for our children.

Despite this huge pressure on modern mums, the vast majority of us end up using formula. And we feel guilty. In Guilt-Free Bottle Feeding award-winning journalist Madeleine Morris and paediatrician Dr Sasha Howard challenge the simplistic message of 'breast is best', revealing what everybody knows, but nobody says out loud - that bottle fed babies can grow up to be perfectly happy, healthy and smart. With a thorough yet accessible analysis of health science, parenting sociology and the modern media, the authors provide a balanced, much-needed and long-overdue voice, showing mothers who don't exclusively breastfeed why they are not failures. A mix of political and practical, Guilt-Free Bottle-Feeding also offers comprehensive advice on feeding, including: Choosing a formula, and choosing a bottleSterilising and preparing a feedHow to promote bonding while bottle-feeding Moving from breast to bottle, and mixed feeding In an era where the pressure on mums is greater than ever before, Guilt-Free Bottle Feeding resets the conversation around infant feeding, supporting all families regardless of how they feed their babies. This is not an anti-breastfeeding book. This is an anti-guilt book. www.guiltfreebottlefeeding.com
