I Support You

While both my twins started out nursing, around 5 months old one of them decided she liked bottles and formula better (they were getting some formula if I had to leave them for an hour to run errands etc.). So now one drinks formula and one is breastfed, so I am okay with both.

I do wish she would nurse because its cheaper and I like the bonding, but she is happy and I will admit it is convenient with 3 under 3 🙂 Interesting to note that the breastfed twin weighs over 6lbs more than the formula fed twin so I wonder how much of that is related to their diet.

There’s a movement going online in the realm of parenting.

The “I support you” campaign was launched in an effort to stop the “mommy wars” with regards to the breastmilk -vs- formula debate.

The way I see it, motherhood is hard enough without having to feel and be judged by others.  We actually do a good job of judging ourselves without outside help.

The parent section of the Huffington post has launched a slideshow with photos containing the “I support you” message.  You can read the article here and submit a photo to the slideshow by simply clicking “add a slide” at the end of the article, tweeting a picture to @HuffPostParents including the #isupportyou hashtag or shooting an email to formulafeeders@gmail.com.

I decided to submit my own message yesterday via twitter.

I support you

Anyone else on for the ride?
