Bronchitis. Ear infection. Asthma.

And the formula-feeding guilt returns.

We have one sick little girly on our hands:(

(((HUGS))). Poor little girl. This is NOT a result of formula feeding! I have plenty of friends with little ones who were breastfed who've had tubes in their ears and asthma as well. You are doing a wonderful job and have a beautiful little girl who loves you very much.

I'm so sorry! Don't feel guilty- like previous comment, I know babies who were EBF and had horrible ear aches and such. I hope she feels better soon!

Aww, poor girl. Hope she's feeling better. And to echo the others, I too know plenty of breastfed babies who are sick a LOT. I really think that the whole "breastfeeding results in healthier kids" line is mostly BS and I think there are just way too many other factors that affect immune systems/likelihood of getting sick/etc. And this is coming from a breastfeeding mom whose baby seems to be sick plenty and I was formula fed as a baby and hardly ever got sick-so that right there flies in the face of the BF babies are healthier theory.
You're a fabulous mom, don't feel guilty. :)

formula feeding does not cause ear infections, asthma etc. Hang in there. It will get better. You are a very good, attentive mom.
