Buy Guilt-Free Bottle-Feeding

You are not a bad mother if you can’t breastfeed!

Guilt-Free Bottle Feeding: why your formula-fed baby can be happy, healthy and smart is a game-changing book for women who aren’t exclusively breastfeeding.

In a world full of mom-shaming which has left women riddled with self-doubt, Morris’ research changes the playing field with evidence that goes beyond the broad statements about the breastfeeding that we’ve become so accustomed to believing… Guilt-Free Bottle-Feeding is an incredible resource for birth professionals and mothers that is long overdue.”

– Randy Patterson, founder and CEO, ProDoula

For decades mums have been told that `breast is best’, that breastfeeding is the single-most important thing we can do for our children. Despite this huge pressure on modern mums, the vast majority of us end up using formula. And we feel guilty.

In Guilt-Free Bottle Feeding award-winning journalist Madeleine Morris and paediatrician Dr Sasha Howard challenge the simplistic message of `breast is best’, revealing what everybody knows, but nobody says out loud – that bottle fed babies can grow up to be perfectly happy, healthy and smart.

With a thorough yet accessible analysis of health science, parenting sociology and the modern media, the authors provide a balanced, much-needed and long-overdue voice, showing mothers who don’t exclusively breastfeed why they are not failures.

A mix of political and practical, Guilt-Free Bottle-Feeding also offers comprehensive, unbiased advice on feeding, including:

– Choosing a formula, and choosing a bottle
– Sterilising and preparing a feed
– How to promote bonding while bottle-feeding
– Moving from breast to bottle, and mixed feeding
