Leading online British parenting magazine has been slammed by parents and critics everywhere for a provocative article published by the deputy editor, Kathryn Blundell, entitled “I formula fed. So what?”

In the article, from the “Mother and Baby” magazine, Blundell wrote about how she bottle-fed her baby since birth because she “wanted [her] body back…(and some wine).” “They’re part of my sexuality, too…and seeing your teeny, tiny, innocent baby latching on where only a lover has been before feels, well, a little creepy,” she added.
The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for a minimum of six months. Still, Blundell has not been not swayed and still found breastfeeding creepy.
“There are all the studies that show [breastfeeding] reduces the risk of breast cancer for you, and stomach upsets and allergies for your baby. But even the convenience and supposed health benefits of breast milk couldn’t induce me to stick my nipple in a bawling baby’s mouth,” she declared.
