Feeding Battles – The not so rosy story behind chubby cheeks and rosy lips
As a mother of a 3 month old, it seems to me that the world out there is divided half and half in its opinion for what is right for my son. By Gods grace, I have a child who is hungry 90% of his wake time. Needless to say then, that whenever we have to make the occasional trip out of the sanctity of our home, he still needs to be fed. Since at this age, he can only be given milk, I am left with all but two options – breastfeed or bottle feed. This is where the dilemma begins. As soon as I take out a bottle…
