Breastfeeding vs bottle feeding. The debate we all know. Both of them have their pros and cons. One thing that is hard about this discussion is that a lot of moms don’t get to fully experience both types of feeding their babies. Like spend a full year, go through all the ups and downs of a single method experience. But some moms have. Emily from The Journey of Parenthood is one of the moms that gets to fully experience both. She breastfed her first three children and is bottle feeding her fourth. I really enjoy her perspective. She writes:
“Even though I knew bottle feeding was the right path for myself, and for our family (this being the 4th kid I couldn’t fathom managing our full home and the stresses of breastfeeding too) I still had a lot of guilt about not at least trying to breastfeed.
