#bottlefeedingstories with Mrs Mummy Harris

27th April 2017

This week on #bottlefeedingstories we have the fab Mrs Mummy Harris

Mrs Mummy Harris is a blog that I started when Ben was about four months old. I was in the throws of PostNatal Depression and needed an outlet and a way to see that my experiences were the same as others for reassurance. I highlight the highs and the lows, it is a warts and all account of my life as a parent, a wife and a working mum.

I started bottle feeding Ben at about three months old but started combination feeding at around two. I had initially planned to boob feed until I returned to work and then express for a while after, however with Ben starting life off in NICU, I feel that might have been the reason my plan didn’t pan out.

#bottlefeedingstories with This Day I Love

20th April 2017

This week’s #bottlefeedingstories comes from Leyla at This Day I Love. She has a really confident story about bottle feeding her third child.

This day I love.......

 

My first 2 children were breastfed babies and my son was bottle fed from birth. I had planned on breastfeeding my eldest daughter and then made the decision to do so with her siblings to make sure I did the same for each child.

#bottlefeedingstories with Naomi

#bottlefeedingstories with The Mighty Duxburys

30th March 2017

Welcome back to #bottlefeedingstories. This week we have the ever so lovely Amy from The Mighty Duxburys

I’m Amy. I blog over at The Mighty Duxburys and live in a little village with my husband Wes and my little one, Short Rib. Before he was born, the ideal scenario would be that he would be breastfed whilst I remained on maternity for eight weeks and after that, I’d express for when I was at work and then breastfeed at home for maybe another four or five months. In reality, I wound up combination feeding right from the off, because my boy was a “sleepy feeder” and wasn’t really interested in my boobs. He just wanted to nap. He continued to show complete apathy towards my chest, so I tried to express instead but after three or four excruciating weeks and very achy boobs, I packed it in and he’s been solely bottle fed ever since.

#bottlefeedingstories with Then There Were Three

23rd March 2017

This week we have Jenna from Then There Were Three sharing her #bottlefeedingstories

www.thentherewerethree.uk – I started to bottle feed pretty much from the day she was born. Ideally I would have loved to have breastfed; however I always had an idea that I would not be able to as a few years ago I had been advised that I had underdeveloped milk glands and that breastfeeding would be a struggle.
