The Secret War Against Breastfeeding

I came across this article today and it really hit home with me. I was a complete failure at breastfeeding. I felt like with my first child I was bombarded at the hospital with too much information about how I should breastfeed.

Long before electric blenders and Gerber baby food, infants got most of their protein from human breast milk until their 2-year-old molars allowed them to chomp on animal tissue.

With my second I was a lot more successful, I lasted about 6 weeks. With number 3 I thought surely I can do this, no problem. I was engorged within days and threw my hands up in defeat. I really wanted to breastfeed but the demands of my daily and personal life just made it so difficult. That, coupled with a lot of mis-information and lack of support made my decision to stop the breast and switch to formula very easy.

It is amazing to think how our ancestors survived. It was breast or death! They had no excuses like I did. I hope I can support all of those breastfeeding Moms out there. I like to think that Bloom provides it’s customers with the equipment and emotional support that they need to continue to breastfeed. Although in the end, it is ultimately a Mother’s decision to breastfeed or not to breastfeed.
