Feeding Your Baby Guilt Free

August 6, 2018

The “Breast is Best” and “Fed is Best" campaigns have been at odds over the "best" way to feed babies. However, both hold valid points. On one hand, breast milk, which is full of vital nutrients, is great for babies and for the mother-baby relationship. On the other, formula is important for babies who aren't growing as quickly as they should be. Dr. Kristina Krohn, an assistant professor in the Department of Medicine, argues the case for guilt-free breastfeeding.

"My bottom line, women should be able to feed their babies guilt free. Even better, they should be proud of their ability to feed their babies," she writes in her blog, Rambling Minnesotan. Every mother is going to have their own preference, but regardless of the route they choose, they should be able to feed their baby with peace of mind.
