Bonding requires love.

That’s all.

Thanks to the FFF community for showing this to be true! (And special thanks to the amazing Amanda Peters for coming up with the #bottlebonding idea and hashtag!)

Suzanne Barston is a blogger and author of BOTTLED UP. Fearless Formula Feeder is a blog – and community – dedicated to infant feeding choice, and committed to providing non-judgmental support for all new parents. It exists to protect women from misleading or misrepresented “facts”; essentialist ideals about what mothers should think, feel, or do; government and health authorities who form policy statements based on ambivalent research; and the insidious beast known as Internetus Trolliamus, Mommy Blog Varietal.

  1. Great pictures, great idea 🙂 One of the really *bad* parts of breastfeeding advocacy (and I am a breastfeeding counsellor) is the occasional implication and sometimes the naked statement that breastfeeding is essential for bonding/attachment. It leads to tired bf mothers desperately trying to express a bottle of milk so their partner can ‘bond’ (as if fathers of breastfed babies don’t bond) and it leads to mothers who use formula being unnecessarily worried that their relationships with their babies will be somehow undermined. Bonding/attachment is a process that thrives with loving, responsive care and emotional connection. It really does not have much to do with the milk or the vessel it’s in.
