Laila Ali shares that giving birth to her second child, Sydney, gave her another shot at breastfeeding the way she intended to the first time around. With her first child, C.J., she unintentionally wound up bottle feeding:
“About a week into it I made the mistake of giving my son a bottle so my husband [Curtis Conway] could help, and then the baby started liking the bottle, and I ended up having to pump. I wasn’t going to give up or stop. I feel like God gave us, as moms, our own custom formula specifically for our child. Why would I want to go buy something from the store instead, that’s made in a factory?
Breastfeeding is a job made for moms to do. I don’t see arguing with that, though I am sure people will. It’s such a short period of time in a child’s life that you are going to be breastfeeding, so let Mom do her thing.”
