Fed is Best Free Cut Files
Hey folks, it’s time for Offbeat Cut File Friday #2! Last week I shared a Cats > People cut file because, well, cats are better than people. If you love cats, definitely check it out—and make sure to check back in the coming weeks for MORE Quality Cat Content.
But this week I’ve got something to say about safe infant feeding. And I’m actually sharing a free bundle of files today, too. Four of them.
What is the Fed is Best Foundation?
Have you ever heard of the Fed is Best Foundation? It’s an inclusive organization that promotes safe infant feeding practices. Here is their official mission statement:
The Fed is Best Foundation works to identify gaps in current breastfeeding protocols, guidelines, and education programs, and provide families and health professionals with the most up-to-date scientific research, education and resources to practice safe infant feeding with breast milk, formula, or a combination of both.
The organization works to counter the harmful messaging of organizations that champion the “Breast is Best” motto, which advocates for breastfeeding and breastfeeding only—and that anything less is inferior. I am someone who failed horribly at breastfeeding, but it wasn’t for lack of trying.
I felt insane pressure to breastfeed. So much so that I exclusively pumped for 5 months, which was hell. Switching to formula was freeing, but it was difficult. Finding the Fed is Best movement was really wonderful for me.
There is a lot of messaging out there telling you that giving your baby formula is not doing what’s best for them, that formula is an inferior choice, that your baby will be doomed to have ear infections and asthma and maybe become a serial killer, and more total BS.
I truly do not understand these women—because that’s what a lot of the people saying these sorts of things are. Women. Women who should be supporting other women, especially because being a parent is f***ing hard.
But Fed is Best Foundation is fighting the food fight. They have so many great supportive resources. The mods also maintain a wonderfully supportive community, and they quickly ban or shut down trolls that venture into the comments section on their Facebook page.
