The RIGHT way to feed your baby

October 27, 2015

Are you feeding your baby the right way?

Are you sure?

Have you read at least 77 articles about the right way to feed your baby? No?

Okay, well then HERE is the guide to PROPERLY feeding your baby.

Step 1: Identify the hungry infant.

Do this by:

  • Keeping a routine with regularly scheduled feedings.
  • Not keeping a routine and noticing your baby’s cues.
  • Using baby telepathy.
  • Doing whatever the heck works best for you; you know your baby the best.

Step 2: Find a comfortable feeding position.

This includes:

  • Sitting
  • Laying
  • Standing
  • Floating
  • Whatever is most comfortable for you

In any of these proper places:

  • Kitchen
  • Living room
  • Bedroom
  • Playground
  • Car
  • Church
  • Mall
  • Rodeo
  • Anywhere that works best for you

Step 3: Prepare the infant’s meal

This includes:

  • Whipping out the boob
  • Shaking up the bottle
  • Pouring the goat’s milk
  • Any other methods of feeding that you choose; you know what’s best for you and your baby.

You do not have to justify or offer an explanation to anyone for the following:

  • Formula-feeding
  • Breastfeeding
  • Formula-and-breast-feeding
  • Pumping for bottle-feeding
  • Using a nursing cover
  • Not using a nursing cover
  • When someone asks, “didn’t you try breastfeeding?”
  • When someone says, “As long as you gave it your best try.”
  • When anyone offers anyone unsolicited advice, opinions, or remarks about how YOU care for YOUR baby

So, have you figured out the right way to feed your baby?

The right way to feed your baby is the way that works BEST for YOU!

And that’s all you ever need to tell anyone who feels so inclined to comment on how you care for your baby.

No explanation, justification, or guilt necessary.
