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.

I too felt an immense pressure to breastfeed and was unsuccessful due to my kid having infant torticollis. It sucked. Throughout my pregnancy and beyond, the "breast is best" mantra was shoved in my face constantly and made it that much more disappointing and difficult for me during a time that was already fraught with stress when I couldn't do it. I felt like a failure and I felt pressure (both external and internal) to pump and bottle feed, which I did for 8 months. Looking back, in some ways I am glad I was able to stick it out that long, but if we have another kid and it is also unable to breastfeed, I don't think I would put myself through that again. I missed so much time when my baby was teeny and I was constantly stressing about my supply. When it came time for me to stop pumping and switch to formula, I felt so guilty for wanting to stop --- it was silly. Fed is best is not anti-breastfeeding...it's anti "there is only one right way to feed your child".

My thoughts exactly, and thank you for sharing. Your story is exactly the same as mine except I drop-kicked my pump to the curb at 5 months. (Well, I sold it. It was a Spectra and those things go like hot cakes.)

I am so terribly sorry that you were ever made to feel any less for not being able to breastfeed your baby. Mothers who adopt, or who aren't physically able to breastfeed, or who simply can't balance the need to work and support their lovely children and also breastfeed (that one is freakin' hard!), or the many other reasons why it is not possible should never be shamed by anyone. It is still true that breastmilk is the most optimum food for infants, simply due to the fact that formula doesn't have the living enzymes, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and antibodies breastmilk has, and that's simply a fact of nature. But the shaming on either side is unacceptable. During a dark time when Nestle was the main culprit in shaming women into believing they couldn't adequately feed their own babies, the 'breast is best' motto did help women discover their options rather than be bullied into formula feeding for no other reason than the wealth of the formula industry. But it shouldn't have caused such a fundamentalist attitude that then excluded the support of women BY WOMEN who could not breastfeed and subsequently chose to formula feed. I am a bit concerned, though, that the 'fed is best' with a bottle image is exactly the same beginning to a pendulum swing in the other direction which will lead to another fundamentalist shaming group. Can't we maybe promote 'healthy baby by many means' rather than always taking sides in an "us and them" mentality? All the best.

Hi Allison, thanks for your comments. Did you look through the entire post? I shared four images, one with a bottle, one with a breast pump, one with a nursing mother, and one with a formula scoop. I relate the most to the bottle image, so I chose that one for a tote bag. Keep in mind that many mothers, especially working mothers, bottle feed breastmilk as well (I did for 5 months before switching to formula). And "promoting a healthy baby by many means" is exactly what the Fed is Best movement is about. It was founded by an MD, Christie del Castillo-Hegyi, and an RN/IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant), B. Jody Segrave-Daly. It's about inclusivity. I'd encourage you to check them out.
