That's right. World Baby Feeding Week.
I think celebrating Breastfeeding should be a thing so long as we also celebrate Formula Feeding.
What kind of judgment must formula-feeding parents feel this week, during World Breastfeeding Week? I imagine they must feel pretty rotten.
There are blogs, memes and images all over social media celebrating the breast this week.
As a doula you may think I'm all about breastfeeding, but as a ProDoula I'm all about you FEEDING your baby. By whatever means YOU choose.
I've noticed a trend with parenting. Some people think one way to parent is better than another. Someone always has something to say, and it's usually negative.
Why not band together as parents? We have the same goal! We want to raise a child into an adult. The paths we take to complete this journey, though matter immensely to those taking them, are ours alone. Respect your fellow parent. Breastfeeding or formula feeding, your baby needs to eat.
And you get to choose the way that is best for you!
So that's it.
I'm unofficially announcing "World Baby Feeding Week".
I celebrate all parents and parenting philosophies.
