Breast milk is Breast milk

My daughter is feed breast milk... through a bottle. I don't know why that's such a big deal, but I always feel the need to explain myself to people. They look at me like I am crazy. The way I see it at least she is getting breast milk! Because of her medical conditions (laryngomalacia and Acid Reflux) I want to do all I can to protect her from illness. But I can't keep her in a bubble! She has 2 older siblings, a 2 year old and 3 year old! Neither of which could tell you what a germ is, and proper hygiene to them is a joke! I can't control everything, but I can control what my baby eats and what I eat! So to give her the best start I pump and she eats! I didn't and don't have time to nurse, and my 2 ego centric children didn't understand why baby was getting all mama's attention! So please give me a high five for my efforts not a puzzled look! I deserve that much at least!

I will give you a high five!!! I think it's great that you have learned how to still do what is best for your child while keeping your sanity and adjusting to the needs of your family as a whole. Even pumping takes time and sacrifice and I think it is wonderful that you did not take the easy way out, as many less selfless, moms these days do. You're an encouragement and inspiration!

Thank you for your support that feels great! I told my husband I needed his support and encouragement esp since milk supply is down due to I'm not pumping enough! He didn't get it!
