Breastfeeding isn’t the be-all and end-all

While experts say that breastfeeding your baby is the ‘best’ way to do it, we like to think that ‘best’ means whatever keeps your baby nourished and mum and/or dad relaxed and happy.

Not everyone is able to, or wants to, breastfeed their child… so we thought we’d share some beautiful pictures celebrating the different ways parents feed their babies.

Feeding your baby with love and connection is the most important thing and we support whichever way works for you.

You’re all doing a great job. x

Bottle feeding is beautiful too.

How did you feed your baby?

    Beautiful pics thank you!

  • Gabs

    Thank you for always congratulating us on doing our best whatever way we can, sharing your failings so we can bolster each other up. Unlike some of these other blogs pitting us against each other. My mantra is so often “I’m doing the best I can”. Although doubt I could do a bit better! Thank you girls. Love your work.
