No idea at all.
Even after she was fully productive, he would empty both barrels and then a bottle of formula on top of that. After a while she gave up and went bottle only and all parties were much happier.
But take heart. Although many women worry about low milk supply, insufficient breast milk production is rare. In fact, most women make one-third more breast milk than their babies typically drink.
you are correct you have no idea
The judgement for not breastfeeding feeding was surprising though, it’s like folk thought we were abusing our children by using formula.
The specialists were obviously all wrong because Surely found an article on the internet.
You’ve had kids before yeah?
I assume you’re familiar with terms such as mastitis, etc? Or is that just “Women’s talk” where you come from?
On a positive note, I can’t recall where I’ve ever walked into a local Coles or Woolies and seen a distinct lack of baby formula on the shelves for this to be considered at crisis point yet.
Is this something that only happens in specific suburbs?
+1 PJ, it might happen occasionally somewhere like Chatswood or Sunnybank but pretty much stinks of a moral panic
I've never noticed it local to me either.
See the odd Chinese tourist group in Katoomba loading up but never to the point where it was totally unavailable.
Bribe? What is bribe?
What the local Chinese suppliers, or companies like Aptamil? If they set up there and do it the right way they'll still be able to charge a fortune as it would be made as per Australian Standards.
St George Area, specifically Hurstville and Kogarah. I noticed people were complaining they had to drive a certain distance to get them
You would have to ask them specifically, but from what I gather, they are not buying it local.
No I can just picture the modern family
f**k breast feeding I want to drink and pop pingers
Christ Sures it's not that simple sometimes mate.
Yeah there's probably a few scumbags who really don't give a f**k and see a bottle as an easy way out.
Some mums may have issues with latching, others insufficient supply, others might be dads who have to do the feeding because mum ain't there, or mum is the breadwinner.
My wife had PND, she breastfed for six weeks and I was the one who told her to stop breastfeeding as she was a mental and emotional wreck because kiddo was a small and frequent feeder so wife never slept, I was worried she was going to neck herself. He wouldn't drink expressed milk either. My wife still has guilt about not being able to go the distance with him and since he is healthy and hitting all markers developmentally I tell her it has not been to his detriment. And my wife doesn't drink so there wasn't a need for her to race off to the bottle so she could go get spastic either.
Where I agree that’s not convenient, I think this one falls under the category of “First world problems”
If it was at a point where baby formula was scarce nationally, only then should the Government step in and do something.
This is probably as stupid as your “people who think fat cops should lose weight are crim lovers” generalisation.
