Whether you had hoped to breastfeed or have chosen not to, one of the myriad of mum-guilt thoughts is whether you can still bond with baby. The great news is it’s a resounding yes. You will be able to bond with your beautiful babe no matter how they are fed & build secure infant attachment through many ways - here are a few suggestions.
Before they can talk, your baby is showing you just how much they love you. It sometimes helps to remember this when you're on your third coffee and wistfully remembering what it was like to have an uninterrupted night's sleep! Here are some tips to make the most of these love moments💛
When it comes to babies, breastfeeding is nature's best resource and provides the optimal balance of nutrition created specifically for your little one. Breastmilk is amazing. Women are amazing (seriously, we carry children, we birth them, we feed them.....how incredible are our bodies!).
All formulas vary in taste so it can take time to comfortably transition to a new brand. A slow and gradual change between formula is recommended to help your baby adjust to the new taste and smell and avoid refusal or change to feeding routine.

Before you join our mumamovement, please take a moment to read some important information.
mumamoo supports the World Health Organisation’s recommendation that breastfeeding is the ideal nutrition for babies. If you are able, breastfeeding provides the optimal balance of nutrition for your little one. Breast milk is simply amazing. A healthy, balanced diet is important during pregnancy and while breastfeeding, this will benefit your milk production.
At mumamoo, we are first and foremost Mums too. We understand that breastfeeding isn’t always possible, and that many of us may need an alternative, or supplementary form of nourishment. We are inclusive of all feeding journeys and our website contains resources, videos and information to support exclusive breastfeeding, mix-feeding and formula feeding. We understand no two experiences are the same and are here to be your village!
If you make the tough decision not to breastfeed, we recommend you seek advice from your health care professional for individual advice for you and your baby. Introducing bottle feeding can impact your supply of breast milk, and once reduced it can be difficult to re-establish. Please also keep in mind the lifestyle and financial changes that may come hand-in-hand with switching to formula.
Should you decide to use a breast milk alternative, please take care to prepare and use the formula as directed. Unnecessary or improper use may make your baby ill. Please remember babies have delicate little tummies, so formula should be introduced gradually, where possible.
