Formula Feeding Quotes
One of the reasons that bottle feeding gets a bad wrap is because some feel it isn’t as much of a bonding experience, but that is not true. Any way that you feed your baby can be a bonding experience.
A few ways to help encourage a stronger bonding experience while formula feeding your little one is to do the following while holding the bottle in your babies mouth:
- Make Eye Contact
- Skin-to-Skin Contact
- Touching and Stroking
- Limiting Feeding Privileges To Parents
- Feeding On Demand
If you are second-guessing yourself, first of all, you should stop. Go with your gut and do what is best for you and your baby!
Second, read these quotes. Some are funny, some are sentimental, and some are just the reassurance that you may need!
