Fearless Formula Feeder

This is a really fabulous blog with a lot of great stories about formula feeding, as well as a lot of good information. The mama struggled to BF but had to switch to a hydrolyzed formula, and she has a great community of support for FFing mamas. (And she is not anti-BFing either.)

I was just reading the thread about feeling guilty and thought I would spread some of the positivity that she vibes: http://fearlessformulafeeder.blogspot.com/.

She also asks for stories from other writers, which she publishes on Fridays.

Bumping this thread for mamas who may not know about FFF; I wish I had found this blog sooner!

Re: Fearless Formula Feeder

She does a really excellent job of debunking some of the unsupported claims as to supposed extreme benefits of breastfeeding. There is hard evidence that it reduces incidence of GI and upper respiratory infections, but that is **not** the case with many of the other claims made (LLL and mommy bloggers take every prelimary study that may have found a link and run with it; often, results are not reproducible or confounders end up negating the supposed findings.)

Actually, this is a problem with the science surrounding birth, also, but I know we aren't talking about that in this thread.

Re: Fearless Formula Feeder

She wrote and awesome book titled "Bottled Up." I'm half way through it and it's really really good!
