Suzanne Barston of the Fearless Formula Feeder blog was very kind and allowed me to share my story of formula feeding. What some of you all may not know is that there is increasing pressure in the adoption community for adoptive moms to breastfeed their babies. I’m not against breastfeeding, but I am apathetic about it. I really wanted to share my thoughts on what this pressure does to moms, and why said pressure is misplaced. It comes on the heels of a study that shows what I’ve always believed to be true: the benefits of breastfeeding are overstated.
